Outdoor Sculpture "Listen" by Tom Nussbaum

Tom Nussbaum's "Listen" was made in 2008 of polyurethane on fiberglass, and is meant to convey what the artist refers to as "what it's like to listen and/or be heard." The large head has one ear to the ground, and is well aware of the small figure perched on its other ear, who is comfortably situated as enjoying being heard.
