Long Description:
If you explore the 4th Street business association's website this sculpture is described:
"Five articulated hand gestures point out towards the street from the wall, spelling the word DREAM in sign language. The gestures can be read from both traffic directions and form a hand gesture language metaphor. The sculpture suggests an implied “activity” echoing the exchanges among people along the street. Derek chose the wall of the K & W Audio building as the background for his high-tech contemporary artwork."

"About the Artist
Derek is an internationally recognized artist and sculptor. Among his many artistic achievements, he was recently invited to participate in the Venice Biennale and is currently a teacher at ACAD."
