Description:  This artwork pays homage to the hybrid nature of the river-port as a meeting point for eastern Oregon's agriculture with ocean bound ships. Blending a stalk of barley with a rustic smoke stack, it suspends a Japanese glass float in the sky as a reminder of the rivers connection with the Pacific Ocean.
