Tony Smith’s Gracehopper, 1961/1988: “This massive welded-steel geometric sculpture by Tony Smith was prominently placed on Louisville’s waterfront as a gift to the city by the Humana Foundation in 1989. When I first moved to the Louisville area from Chicago in 2009, this sculpture made me feel at home. I’ll always be from Chicago, but Louisville has great history and has played an important role in what I’m doing now. The sculpture is numbered 2/3 and was posthumously produced by Lippincott Inc. for a million dollars.”
