Albert Paley's "Odyssey" on the 24th Street Bridge

Since August 2010, the 24th Street Bridge in Council Bluffs has been home to the artist Albert Paley's "Odyssey." Four sculptures, created with three different metals (stainless steel, weathering steel and bronze plate) make up "Odyssey."

Bringing "Odyssey" to Council Bluffs was a partnership between the Iowa West Foundation and Iowa DOT. The Iowa West Foundation commissioned and purchased the artwork, and Iowa DOT engineers designed sculpture platforms and made sure the sculptures were structurally sound and able to withstand the wind, ice and snow common in Iowa winters.
