This interactive, kinetic sculpture acts as a giant magnifying glass. Sunbeams pour through the colored lens as the viewer swivels the rings into position to catch the light, casting a stained glass reflection on the ground, or anything else it hits. Magnify demonstrates the concepts of transparency, light reflection and refraction, and the physics of mobility with its rotating top.

Sponsored by City of Frankfort, National Endowment for the Arts, and Richard & Anna Marie Rosen.

Available for purchase.

Located at the corner of Second and Norton Streets.
