Downtown Champaign Welcomes "Counter Rhythm"

When strolling down Main Street in Downtown Champaign, you will see "Counter Rhythm" by artist Charles Ellis of Indianapolis, IN.  The sculpture is installed in the front window of Jos. Kuhn & Co. at 33 E. Main St.  To describe the sculpture, the artist provides the following definition:

"counter (contradict/ oppose)_rhythm (cadence/ measure)"

"A communal cadence of repetitive forces springs forth from a canted established base to find its individual radical essence."

Thank you to Jos. Kuhn & Co. for the sponsorship of this wonderful piece.
