Installed in 2007, Ghost Ballet for the East Bank Machineworks is located on the bank of the Cumberland River, opposite the downtown. The 100’ x 100’ x 60’ sculpture was Nashville’s first Percent for Public Art commission. The artwork references the site’s industrial past and visually echoes current surroundings, including nearby bridges and the NFL Titans stadium. Its dynamic form conveys a sense of the area’s evolution from an industrial working river to recreation and entertainment.
I stalled heading out for this shooting experience for multiple days this week but finally forced myself to head out on the last night of my trip. As I roamed along the river shooting various angles of the skyline, there was nobody else around- probably due the single digit temperatures.
