"The Pike" sculpture installation

A gateway sculpture “The Pike” by artist Daniel Lipski, is currently being installed at the Arlington-Fairfax County border, (Columbia Pike at South .Jefferson Street).

It is a wind turbine blade, mounted on a base embedded with thousands of coins from around the world. It was a multi-year process getting approval and the installation done. A ribbon-cutting will occur in the fall of 2022. 

More information about the sculpture and installation is at ArlNow and on Arlington County government's site here.

It was interesting to hear local Pike residents comments as to what they thought the sculpture was.

Updated photographs of the finished installation will be posted later this summer.
