Sing the River Sculpture
The Downtown Baton Rouge Rotary sculpture "Sing the River" on the Riverfront is a significant and captivating art installation that graces the urban landscape of Baton Rouge. This impressive sculpture stands as a testament to the city's commitment to promoting public art and enhancing its riverfront area.
The Florida Riverfront Access Point is one of several redesign projects aimed at connecting downtown to the Mississippi River and accommodating the increasing amount of bicycle and pedestrian activity. The Rotary Club of Baton Rouge chose this site for the location of its Centennial Project, utilizing privately raised funds to construct a pinnacle sculpture piece marking the Rotary’s centennial anniversary. World-renowned artist Po Shu Wang was selected to design a sculpture visible from the Mississippi River Bridge with the largest sphere standing 14 feet tall. A sensor, located in the Mississippi River, measures the speed of the current and the height of the river and converts the data frequencies to a singing sound within the sculpture. The sculpture was donated to the City-Parish in December 2019.
