Video of the Statue Exploration

Art and Life

Exploration Statue outside of the Detroit Public Library
Exploration. It's one of those words that we often think that other people do. You know, "space exploration" or travelers from days gone by exploring unfamiliar lands.


But how about the exploration of ideas? And what better way to do that than through books. The statue, created by Joseph N. DeLauro in 1967, is simply called Exploration. It is a piece of public art that's outside of the Detroit Public Library's main branch on the Cass Avenue side. It's just outside the Explorer's Room at the Children's Library entrance.


Too often we rush about hurrying to get things done, and that's unfortunate because that's when we miss things. I'm guilty of this myself, but I had some time after a recent visit to the WSU Farmers Market, and that's when I noticed the bronze statue outside of the library. Without a doubt, it's a beautiful statue and one worth spending some time with before going off to explore the library.
