The Norwalk Art Space is a new art gallery in Norwalk, CT. This sculpture is called After the Race III by Gilbert Boro.

From Art Space's website:

"The permanent sculpture by Connecticut-based artist, Gilbert Boro, “After the Race III”, evokes memories of sailing on Long Island Sound. It was selected in part because of our founder, Alexandra Korry’s, love of sailing with her husband and daughters. "After the Race III" is a dynamic construction in welded steel, in which elegant curved surfaces rise 16 feet upward toward the sky. The intersecting planes energize negative and positive spaces around and within the sculpture. The carefully crafted steel plates are painted a vibrant orange, creating an ambience that reflects the light and energy of the day or evening. Gilbert Boro’s "After the Race sculpture series" was developed after many years of sailing and participation in sailboat races and regattas. Mr. Boro has had a distinguished career as a sculptor, architect, educator and international design consultant. His sculpture is concerned with the interplay of space, place and scale. He uses various materials, including steel, in this case, with the 16 foot height of the sculpture intended to help redefine our building as an art hub. Mr. Boro’s highly acclaimed work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe."
