Long Description:
"The Spirit of Inquiry by northwest design team artists Bill Will and Norie Sato celebrates diverse ways of seeing and knowing. The artwork is composed of six elements: a monumental spherical sculpture, three “cabinets of curiosities” and two shelves of objects incorporated into the green screen. It is, in its entirety, referential to art, science, education and history, Hohokam through present day.

The sculptural form is composed of approximately 50 layers of a variety of materials that create a sphere. Many of the layers “slip” slightly to reveal etched texts of great thinkers."
