Julian Opie: Sara dancing, sparkly top

For this work, Julian Opie uses a light-emitting diode (LED), which will depict a woman in constant motion as she dances on Ridgefield's Main Street twenty-four hours a day. Both stylized and iconic, the sculpture is 73" high by 43" wide by 10” deep and will attract the notice of people driving and walking to and from town.
