Sculpture "Rhythm of the Train"

Location: Government Center Metrorail Station
Stainless steel, 1988
Artist: Joan Lehman

Executed in brushed stainless steel, this monumental sculpture by Miami-based artist Joan Lehman spans 29 feet and rises 17 feet at its highest point. The eight arched elements create an undulating rhythm alluding to the speed, movement, and rhythm of rail travel. Sited in 1990, the sculpture has become a landmark for Miami's Cultural Plaza which houses The Historical Museum of Southern Florida, Miami Art Museum, and the Main Library.
