Geocache Description:


"I know it when I see it..." - Potter Stewart.

This urban nano will bring you within sight of a work by Roger Majorowicz of Whitefield who incorporated concepts developed by a cross section of Waterville's citizens. To receive $800,000 in Federal grants the city was required to use 10 percent of the funds for a prominently displayed piece of public art. The stainless steel construction rotates in a breeze and is symbolic of "the need for adjusting to the winds of change". The central orb represents Waterville's place in the global economy while one of the projections direct all to look to the future. Two major forces necessary for the development of the city, the Kennebec River and the Railroad are represented by the crescent moon and the discs respectively.

BYOP.Tweezers may be necessary also.

FTF by shapoopok and to fins2right in less than favorable conditions. You made quick work of this one, congratulations!

Update. December 2018 Instead of being banished to a barren field near the river, the sculpture now stands in beautiful surroundings near the new amphitheatre and stage. It is a huge improvement over the original location in the center of a parking lot where it was more of a nuisance to large trucks and hardly noticed by those who passed by. Now it can be fully appreciated in a more synergistic environment.
