Swans in Flight is a bronze-and-steel masterpiece by internationally acclaimed British sculptor Sir David Wynne. Depicting the five stages of a swan taking flight, each bird weighs up to three quarters of a ton and has a wingspan of up to 15 feet. The sculpture sits in a 120-foot reflecting pool as six water jets cascade over the swans, giving the appearance of motion in flight.
Surrounding the sculpture, the Grand Mall is paved with over 40,000 square feet of travertine marble imported from Turkey. A beautiful lawn stretches west to the Hall of Administration and north to Spurlin Lake, creating an ideal setting for outdoor events.
