Description: The two figures represent the leaders of Nashville directing the development of the city, going back to founders James Robertson and John Donelson to Fisk and Tennessee A&I University students leading the Nashville Civil Rights reform to current leadership. The sculptures turn to represent every Nashvillian's participation in the city. At night, the sculptures are lit to serve as a beacon for a gathering place for all of Nashville.
