“Greek goddess of shooting stars, astrology, and prophetic dreams. The kinetic blue aster “bouquet” represents the nocturnal oracles and astrological wizardry of Asteria. The abstract rusted steel figure conveys her dark magic of necromancy (communicating with the dead) and foretelling the future.”
Asteria was one of thirteen sculptures featured in the 2017 Art on the Campus exhibit. Upon completion of the exhibit, the Public Arts Advisory Commission purchased Asteria and it became the third acquisition in the West Des Moines public art permanent collection. Asteria is located at the front entrance of Valley View Aquatic Center.
