See the power of the Adinkra Tower, St. Louis artist Thomas Sleet’s new sculpture for Metro’s Riverview Transit Center. This monumental artwork incorporates the visual symbols known as Adinkra that were created by the Ashanti people of Ghana in West Africa. These symbols represent concise statements of principle, and while aspirational in their own right, are even more powerful when brought together through this artist’s stunning vision.
Commissioned by Metro through its Arts in Transit program, this work will serve as a beacon of strength, wisdom and grace.
