This sculpture is a riff on the piece of the same name by the ancient Greek sculptor Myron. Myron’s Discobolos no longer exists and is only known through Roman copies. Babcock makes public art because he believes that public spaces reflect the ways communities and individuals think of themselves in relation to others and to the larger world.
