Serenity: Pride in our Formation, 2007

Ken Spiering
(American, born 1950)

Location: Mountainview High School

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

"Serenity: Pride in our Formation" is one part of a two-part artwork by Ken Spiering that uses the river as a metaphor for our lives, with successive waterfalls and pools depicting placidity, turbulence, sunlight, shadow, stagnation, and flow, but always "recovering and collecting itself into yet another full volume."

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