Long Description:
"70-foot tall, 20-ton, blue-painted, welded steel, sculpture, which has graced Doug Burnette Park on Gaines Street since 2008. Its formal name is "Quark," Text adapted: (visit link)

"The lower half of the work is composed of flat planes, which support three long beams that rise from the base at varied angles.

The sculpture weighs approximately 41,539 pounds and is 70 feet high and 36 feet long with a base that is 12 feet in diameter." Text Source: (visit link)
