San Antonio artist, Cakky Brawley, created Past, Present, and Future for the new District 2 Schaefer Branch Library. The artwork is a triptych created by two etched acrylic panels and a center metal sphere that focuses on the area surrounding the new library and its vibrant community. The central metal sphere references the future as well as the library as a place of exploration and discovery. The two etched acrylic maps are a nod to the past and present, the left map is from 1887 and the right map is present day. Each piece is illuminated with a kinetic LED sequence.
