Standing the Test of Time

Bruce Niemi, Stainless Steel

Standing the Test of Time, by Bruce Niemi, is a stainless steel sundial that was installed at West Bend Mutual Insurance Company in 2008. The obelisk is 24 feet long, 8 feet in diameter and 17 feet tall. Its stainless steel sparkles and appears to dance in place as it reaches into the sky. Niemi rst learned how to sculpt metal in his father’s studio and went on to get his BFA in sculpture from Northern Illinois University in 1981.
