“Open Window” by Ted Schaal Installed

Open Window SchaalOpen Window, created by Ted Schaal, was the winning design for Sculpture at the River Market’s 2013 Monument Commission Competition. You can find Ted’s bronze and mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture along the south bank of the Arkansas River between the Junction Bridge and First Security Amphitheater.

Ted said, “The phrase ‘God doesn’t close a door without opening a window’ inspired the conceptual design of this contemporary sculpture. The stainless steel orb represents that moment of grace when one recognizes the opportunity to move on from a particular situation of life. Gold leaf is used to embellish the Window.”  The sculpture was installed in May 2015.
