Located in the lobby of the Children's Pride Day Care Center (known as the Concourse Village East Day Care Center, when the piece was commissioned), Therman Statom's installation, Luz, consists of two parts: an expansive terrazzo floor and a huge metal and glass sculpture that hangs from the ceiling. The floor is inlaid with green-leaf shapes while the sculpture resembles a large-scale child's mobile, the elements of which include a fiberglass painted moon, a copper cone shape, metal painted leaves, and a clear glasshouse.
