The steel beams in Cathedral were designed to reflect the outline of the mountains that surround the North Shore. The work is meant to reflect the artist's perception of spiritual quality within the landscape. The public is invited to experience the "spirit inside the work" by walking through it.
Steel beams, 75' wide by 115' long
