Beckoning Cistern
The "Beckoning Cistern" is the next implementation of the Growing Vine Street project. The galvanized aluminum cistern collects roof water from the 81 Vine Street building. Water is directed from the roof via downspout then through the extended index finger of an outstreched hand and into the 6' x 10' tank "cuff" before eventually making its way down Vine Street to the Cistern Steps.The gesture of the outstreaching finger suggests that of the Creation of Adam by Michelangelo from the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
