“Inspiring both native Charlotteans and visitors alike”
Metalmorphosis was conceived by Count Riprand Arco, Founder and Chairman of American Asset Corporation, when the Count set out to design a visually stunning focal point for AAC's 200-acre office park development - Whitehall Corporate Center. With it's grand plaza, Whitehall Corporate Center presented an opportunity to create something monumental - a sculpture that would inspire both native Charlotteans and visitors alike. Count Arco approached internationally renown Czech Sculptor, David Cerny. Cerny's idea for a one-of-a-kind sculpture was conceived, crafted and executed from its original concept, a testament to his technical savvy and his talent as an artist. Cerny says, "I was thinking about doing something as a centerpiece. I knew I wanted to employ water from the beginning." In addition to the water element, Cerny's design also incorporates a complex infrastructure and choreographed movement on a magnificent scale, creating a beautiful synergy of form and function.
It is back, but doesn't work. I was told that the repairs of 3 yrs ago did not work. It is stationary but the fountain works. Still impressive.
Completely gone. Stopped on our way to Florida and it was just a metal pole.
Visited Metalmorphosis in March 2019, and he was changing shapes/working. I think this is a great stop! It's free, and an awesome photo opp! We took these from our car. This was our 2nd time here. The other time we went during the week/business hours, and it was crazy busy, hard to find a parking spot. This time, we went on Sunday and hardly anybody was there. I definitely recommend if in the area!
Im going to guess this is no longer working... he only had a neck when we went.
WHEN was this rushed to Czech Republic for repairs? Is it back now?? Jan 2014??
I believe its been back for a while now.
Beautiful piece of art. The water feature was fun for the kids.
Wasn't what I expected. It's located in a business park, and the rotating head isn't working. Still was fun to break up the monotony of I-85. Go when it is sunset!
I went July 27th 2017 - only the neck is there.
It is back and working! We were able to see the spin in two different patterns. It was a great break to a long trip. The plaza around was perfect to stretch your legs. We went early in the morning and had the place to ourselves.
