  4. The Tumbler

    Former City of Springfield Assistant Public Works Director Jonathan Gano unearthed a few surprises when he was doing research on Park Central Square in the spring of 2012. Hoping to find out if the large, brown steel structure on the square had a name, he tracked down the artwork’s sculptor, Aris Demetrios, after locating information from news accounts.

    The City of Springfield's Sidewalk Poetry project incorporates poetry into the urban landscape. The poems, all provided by Ozarks poets and stamped into sidewalks at Missouri State University's Brick City, were chosen by a panel of MSU faculty and students, City staff and local artists, writers and poets.
