Now Get

Now Get was commissioned by the Kentucky Arts Council, the Transportation Cabinet, and the Finance and Administration Cabinet in 2003. Artist Garry Bibbs created columns to represent government and order, while the looping bridge forms connecting the columns represent travel, both in time and in space, culminating in the abstract flying automobile at the top.

The title of the sculpture derives from Southern slang meaning “get out of here and get out of here quickly.” The artist used this expression to draw people in to make their own interpretations.
