Long Description:
This sculpture is located on the UCONN Stamford campus but is easily accessible to the public. It is across the street from the Target store at the corner of Broad Street and Franklin Street, downtown Stamford.

"A bronze sculpture is located within a mini-park designed by Jim Sanborn that links Stamford’s past and its future. A walkway edged by massive granite slabs is suggestive of the name given to the city by early indigenous peoples: Rippowam, or “Cliff of Rocks.” The serpentine bronze screen contains a passage from Native American lore in English, the Algonquin language, and the binary “language” of computers."
