Century Walk: ‘Symbiotic Sojourn’

-

While St. Patrick’s Day is well known around the world as a day for celebration, the day after, March 18, is also a day to celebrate. It is “global recycling day”!

We at Century Walk have been celebrating this day for over 20 years now with our “Symbiotic Sojourn” sculpture framed by the archway of Main Street Promenade at 55 South Main St.

This sculpture created by Jeff Adams and dedicated November 2, 2003, was inspired by the visionary activism of Barbara Ashley Sielaff who prompted Naperville to become a national leader fifty years ago in recycling with the establishment of the Naperville Area Recycling Center in 1973.

So maybe after having some green beer and corned beef and cabbage you might saunter down and take a look at this moving tribute to our city’s early and significant role in recycling and see if you agree that our 22nd public art location symbiotically captures and conveys the interdependent relationship between people and the earth.
