Created in part of the 2012 London Olympics 'Art in The Park' program, the 'RUN' sculpture by Monica Bonvincini is making headlines for its dynamic impact.

The massive three-part sculpture, which is gigantic in size, stands out because of its transformative abilities. During the day, the three letters are reflective, acting as giant mirrors to those who visit. During the night, however, the sculpture turns seemingly transparent and is lit via LED lights. Maintaining a good balance between brash and elegant, 'RUN' is an absolute success and a great fit with the Olympic games.

Standing tall at 30 feet, Monica Bonvincini's 'RUN' is an unmissable piece that makes a strong statement. Olympic enthusiasts and design junkies are sure to be on the lookout for what's next for this bold artist.
