A plaque was attached to a concrete pillar next to the sidewalk, rather than next to the sculpture. Note that this the plaque omitted the name of the sculpture. So we presumed to call it "Fans." The plaque read:

The sculpture rose high overhead. It looked like intersecting fans, or perhaps abstract jazz hands.

The concrete base was stout. It was high enough to discourage sitting.

The sculpture looked handsome backed by palm trees and a glass building.

The effect looked like a fan, but one absent its paper covering.

A metal rod passed through the silver colored bars and held them together.
