Double Arch, a 2017 TEMPO Austin Art in Public Places project, is a 12' tall X 20' wide, welded steel sculpture over an octagonal shaped planting bed. Nearby native plantings and a Purple Martin habitat situate the sculpture within a community managed wildscape. Butterfly larval and nectar plants, installed with the sculpture, will be incorporated into the beds after the sculpture is gone.

As participants move around the sculpture the change in perspective creates a change in the density of the paint, a color inspired by the purple/blue of the Gregg's Mist flower.
