ABOUT THE ARTWORK

[no photo available] The bronze sculpture Gymnast depicts a figure reaching as though about to leap, signifying balance and anticipation. Originally created by sculptor Phillip Levine in 1976, it was part of a larger sculpture featuring multiple figures. Phillip Levine reconceived the sculpture in 2004 after the original piece was vandalized at its original location.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Central Kitsap School District.
