Across the road from Blue Spring is this striking, 17-foot long, silver sculpture. Artist Nicole Beck describes it as "a lyrical interpretation of fast-flowing air currents paired with the physics of the cantilever."

It was originally displayed along the Chicago River in Chicago, Illinois (the artist is a Chicago native). The City of Blue Springs obtained and installed the sculpture at its current location in 2012.
