Sculpture to be unveiled in front of Anthropologie
Dynamic Tension, a new sculpture gifted to the city of Birmingham by artist Lois Teicher, has been installed at the intersection of W. Maple and Henrietta, in front of Anthropologie, and the public is invited to attend an unveiling ceremony by the sculpture on Friday, October 15 at 2:00 p.m.
According to Teicher, an award-winning artist, “Dynamic Tension refers to opposing forces which are characterized by constant change, activity or progress. These forces producing motion are in constant tension. This sculpture refers to this concept, in visual form.”
Themes used in Teicher’s work flow directly from the artist’s search to understand and connect to the universe. Her intention with public and private sculptures is to express ideas in the visual language, hoping that the viewer will notice, reflect upon, become aware of, and share in the experience.
Teicher has had a number of sculptures commissioned locally at locations such as the Scarab Club in Detroit and Bishop International Airport in Flint, as well as around the country in locations such as Kansas City, Missouri and Hoboken, New Jersey.

“We invite the community to join us in celebrating the unveiling of the city’s newest sculpture and hear from artist Lois Teicher,” said Brooks Cowan, city planner. “Birmingham is home to many art and cultural organizations, and we welcome residents and visitors alike to enjoy Dynamic Tension and all of the artwork on display throughout the city.”
