Symbolic public art stands at the entrance to the City of San Diego North University Community Branch Library. The sculpture is titled Sprout.
Sprout was created by artist Blue McRight in 2007, the year the library opened.
The unique stainless steel sculpture is in the shape of a tender seedling about to rise up from the earth. Scattered on its two new leaves are many letters. Should this young plant grow and flourish, simple words would surely appear upon it, and its words would multiply.
With a little imagination you can see how Sprout’s small seed, given time and proper care, would produce a full grown tree of knowledge.
That’s what happens in a library, right?
At night the letters light up, which is something I have not yet experienced.
