I popped over to Centennial Park this morning to see this art installation for myself. Created by Mario Martinez and sponsored in Nashville by an unnamed “local arts patron,” the sculptures are called “The Mars Molecule Project.”
Two of the sculptures are near West End Ave. in Centennial park, while one of these molecules replicated itself over at Pinewood Social in Rolling Mill Hill. Installed December 9, the sculptures are scheduled to stay for 6 months.
Paige LaRae watched the third molecule being installed at Pinewood Social:
