Long Description:

The sculpture was created by Zenos Frudakis. These Three 7 foot high bronzes are located @ the Colwick Office Complex, @ 941 Haddonfield Road. This fountain and naked nymphs (and dude) are about 75 feet from the road. The fountain is located in front of the Inquirer's outside employee break area. With a view like that, I am sure most employees take their lunch out on the courtyard. You can figure out which is the better view, the nymphs (or possibly the dude) or fountain. The sculptures suffer from a green patina which does not detract from the beauty of the art. There is a figure in flight, a figure on the water or rather, stepping out of the water and a third figure that is arched over in a dance pose, The three figures are very graceful, like ballerina dancers. Upon closer inspection, however one might surmise the three figures are actually the same exact person just in different stages of achieving flight, hence the title of the sculpture, Dream to Fly. This would be the same idea with another one of his sculptures, called Freedom which depicts the same person in different stages to ultimately achieve freedom.
