Artist John Acorn’s new sculpture debuts in Greenville

From the Greenville News:

“John Acorn’s Orbital Trio, commissioned by hotel owner D.J. Rama, made its debut in NOMA Square in front of the downtown Hyatt Regency.

‘Orbital Trio is a phenomenal addition to the great array of public art in the downtown area,’ said Alan Ethridge, executive director of the Metropolitan Arts Council.

Acorn’s abstract sculpture consists of a network of interlocking aluminum spheres.

Acorn, an acclaimed artist who taught in the Clemson University art department for 36 years before retiring in 1997, was on hand as the sculpture was uncovered.

‘This project has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had,’ Acorn said.”
