Number 4 on the tour of the Art around Roswell exhibit is a gleaming tower of polished aluminum located in the Roswell Town Square. The twisting shape represent the patterns made by smoke rising and blowing in the wind. Walking around the sculpture gives many beautiful variations as the light reflects off the shiny metal and seems to dance in the sun.
Roswell Town Square is just across the road from the old Roswell Mill. The mill was a major supplier of cloth to the Confederate army for making uniforms. When the town was overtaken by the Union army in 1864, the mill was burned down to prevent it’s continued use in support of the southern troops. This artwork is said to represent the smoke rising from the ashes of that fire.
