COLUMBIA — "Tidal Murmur," a sculpture by Beth Nybeck, was installed Thursday outside the new Short Street garage.

Nybeck, sculptor and artist-in-residence at Battle High School, has a studio in Kansas City. In her proposal for the sculpture, she cited the ripple effect and Columbia's energy as inspiration. The sculpture is composed of several sinuous, rippling stainless steel waves.

Nybeck was awarded a grant from Columbia's Percent for Art Program to create the public art.
