  • I was in Prague in September and visited many of David Cerny's art pieces and it was great fun to find this one here in the USofA. Looks very similar to the one of Frank Kafka in Prague. I read in ear...  more »
  • It is free and easy to access... so why not swing by and see this fun art piece?! We parked within a 30 second walk and had fun watching it and taking photos. 
  • We drove from downtown so it took us a bit to get there but was well worth. I really enjoyed. My 10 year old enjoyed it also.

  • Great stop on our Charlotte tour. Easy parking and it's really neat to watch and photograph.
  • Very beautiful. Whenever family visit I make sure I take them to see it. You'll love it if you have an appreciation for art
  • The original version in Prague is pretty cool (you can find it on YouTube, search for "K On Sun"). This one doesn't do the same movements (only moves in sections, not independent pieces), and in the two years I've worked here it's been broken more than it has worked. Great idea, if they can fix it, it would be pretty cool.
  • One of the more interesting sculptures that I have ever seen!
  • Metalmorphosis was conceived by Count Riprand Arco, Founder and Chairman of American Asset Corporation, when the Count set out to design a visually stunning focal point for AAC's 200-acre office park development - Whitehall Corporate Center. With it's grand plaza, Whitehall Corporate Center presented an opportunity to create something monumental - a sculpture that would inspire both native Charlotteans and visitors alike. Count Arco approached internationally renown Czech Sculptor, David Cerny. Cerny's idea for a one-of-a-kind sculpture was conceived, crafted and executed from its original concept, a testament to his technical savvy and his talent as an artist. Cerny says, "I was thinking about doing something as a centerpiece. I knew I wanted to employ water from the beginning." In addition to the water element, Cerny's design also incorporates a complex infrastructure and choreographed movement on a magnificent scale, creating a beautiful synergy of form and function.
