00601 Unity of Man Fountain.jpg

Fountain of five stacked spheres with eye-like facets on each side; water comes from each side. Unity of Man is one of the largest welded bronze fountains in the United States at 19 feet tall. In 1966, University of Washington art professor Tsutakawa proposed a fountain design to the Hobart Technical Center, which was seeking a welded metal artwork to commemorate their new building. Upon their acceptance, David Niland designed the raised concrete architectural setting and the reflecting pool that would hold the main sculpture. Jack Uchida did the engineering work.

It's located in front of the Hobart Institute of Welding Technology.
