Ries Niemi’s three stainless steel outdoor works are abstract, but based on local symbols and history. A stylized wing-shape symbolizes aviation’s role in developing San Antonio.  A large open bench is styled loosely on the architecture of Municipal Auditorium.

The chimney-like column recalls limestone chimneys of local cement quarries. English, Spanish and German text wraps around each piece dealing with remembrance and the process of layering history.
