Martin Beach, 2014
Columbus sculptor Martin Beach created Modern Totem out of masabi black granite from Minnesota, the process took him about 800 hours.
Beach said, “Totems have been a symbol of community, identity, kinship, not just in the pacific-northwest, but also in many totemic cultures across the globe, and a symbol that I believe to be perfect for a space designed to exemplify those traits.”
The library’s stone steps came from the same quarry.
