Modern sculpture

This artwork is on the grounds of the Schenectady Museum. If you drive here, go round the side overlooking the hill you drove up.

There's no name plate, no sign indicating the artist, the name or the year it was created. Very interesting.

It looks a bit like a large machine screw, truncated at both ends. It's resting on some gravel that's gradually being overtaken by the grass. It may have been painted once; maybe not.

It's a very appropriate symbol for what Schenectady has become. Industrial, but quiet, nature slowly reclaiming her own.
