Jesus Morales / Public Art in Arlington, VA

Artist: Jesus Morales

Inspired by Arlington’s location on the geological dividing line between the Piedmont and the Coastal Plain of Virginia and proximity to Great Falls, Morales created a red granite 4’ tall rough cylindrical "mountain" from which water flows into narrow channels of water- the waterways of the Coastal Plain. Three gnarly granite pillars, also with water flowing along their surfaces, represent Virginia’s trees. Included in the design are three benches: one circular bench that allows for 360 degree seating, an elongated bench, and a third seat that can be swiveled to view the surrounding from many directions.
