Continuum (public art) by Carrie McGee

Installed summer of 2011, Continuum is located above the circulation desk at the Goodlettsville Library. Consisting of eighteen acrylic tiles hanging from a suspended ring, Continuum mirrors the circular architecture of the library. The translucent acrylic tiles are references to the history of the Goodlettsville area and the role of the library as a source of information. The “book like” tiles include historical images from Goodlettsville and rust impressions from local items. Nashville artist Carrie McGee, along with writer David Sprouse and designer Heidi Sprouse, created a book documenting the photographs and objects included in the artwork. For her graphic design work on the book, Heidi Sprouse received a "Juror's Discretionary Award" at the 65th Annual Student Art Competition at the University of Tennessee School of Art (2012). The book is available in pdf or print versions.
