â€œPortalâ€ is the work of Mike Roig of Carrboro, NC.
Mike is also the artist that created â€œYo-Yos Museâ€ that is now in Kingsports permanent collection and is located at the circle on Watauga Street.
This is a kinetic sculpture that moves with the wind. The top part moves very slowly (or not at all) and the middle circle moves more quickly.
The shape of the middle is very interesting and at times it looks wide (and open) and at times is looks flat (and closed).
