Summit County Public Art


Yambow consists of hundreds of multi-colored leaves and grasses made from brass, copper and aluminum, floating throughout the luminous overhead space in the Kamas Library lobby. Maple, aspen, and spruce leaves reflect the inherent natural beauty of the Kamas Valley. The grasses and alfalfa reflect the importance of agriculture in the valley. The loose form is arranged to invoke the flow of a stream floating up through the space.

Utah artist Day Christensen has completed over 20 public works of art in the state, including a Salt Lake City TRAX Station. Yambow was made possible by Summit County’s 1% for Art policy which allocates 1% of all county capital projects to fund public art.

Yambow is located in the foyer at the library entrance.
