Lithotroph is the most ambitious public sculpture installation yet by Pennsylvania based contemporary artist Crystal Wagner.  Her colossal piece is wrapped around the remaining facade of the landmark Reynolds Davis building, bringing a jolt of wonder  to the Old West urban landscape. Interested in the dialog between architecture and natural forms, Wagner's Lithotroph is a pseudo-organism born of the modern world with the biological utility of an organic growth. The process required the daily help of dozens of volunteers, including the enthusiastic staff of the most prestigious art institution in the region, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
