Nexus, 2014


This sculpture was installed as part of the 2014 Columbus Sculpture Biennial.

Location: Southwest corner of 11th and Jackson Streets.


One of the sculptures in the 2014 Sculpture Biennial, “Nexus” is by Sam Spiczka. It is constructed of Cor-ten, stainless steel, and wood. Spiczka’s work is inspired by natural bone forms, rural technology, and geometric structure. Born and raised in rural Minnesota, Spiczka became captivated by metal early on through the experience of working at his family’s welding shop. Though he briefly studied art and philosophy at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, his true education has come from nature, the example of past sculptors, and the craftsmanship of his father. His work and can be found in many public and private collections.
