Good Morning, 1996
Limestone, cedar, bronze
On the eastern border of the state, atop a limestone column, a bronze coffee cup holds a rising sun aloft. This fourteen foot tall sculpture is Greely Myatt’s humorous welcome to those arriving from North Carolina. It’s also a salute to songwriter Lyle Lovett, whose song I’ve Been to Memphis begins with the words “the sun comes up in a coffee cup”.
Artist: Greely Myatt
