The Chelsea is a modern landmark in Nashville’s favorite in-town neighborhood. An intimate community of only 79 condominiums, The Chelsea’s award winning design, influenced by mid-century modernism reflects the artistic nature of 12 South.

"When I was a youngster, my parents impressed upon me the importance of bringing a gift to a welcome party whenever possible. It’s in the same spirit of goodwill that we present this work of public art, Rapprochement. Rapprochement describes the establishment of harmonious relations. I hope that this piece of public art can be just that: part of a bridge between the established neighborhood and its latest edition. Adding a public art component to this development reminds us that it isn’t enough to merely satisfy the basic utilitarian need for shelter. We must strive to satisfy the needs of the soul as well. The value of our public space is measured in much more than dollars and cents. Rapprochement is our small contribution to the cause."
