Winding Walk Dedicated At Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House
Life is a journey reflected in the Winding Walk artwork that was dedicated to the Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House.
The stainless steel-clad column created by artist Gillian Christy, a native of Davenport, has been donated to the hospice house by local benefactors, including Gillian's parents, Rebecca and Mark Christy. The sculpture is located along a peaceful, natural walk outside the hospice house.
Winding Walk features a winding stairway and an opened window with shutters. The natural element found in the window is a feather that has landed. Gillian Christy said the elements of nature in Winding Walk "express the flexibilities and intricacies of life.''
In her artwork, Gillian said she sets out to express a meaningful story, whether it is about events in her life or stories found within a community.
A 1997 graduate of Davenport West High School, Gillian Christy received a degree in fine arts from the University of Northern Iowa. She is based in Providence, R.I..
Gillian has completed many public art commissions and continually exhibits artwork nationally. Gillian's work is also on display locally at Davenport West High School and Faith United Church of Christ in Davenport.
