Nestled at the entrance of the Warlick Family YMCA stands a captivating sculpture titled "Apilados." Crafted by acclaimed Argentine artist Raul Diaz, this striking artwork portrays a stack of small boats, haphazardly arranged and culminating with a human figure emerging at the top. Standing approximately 7 feet tall and weighing around 1,600 pounds, "Apilados" represents the delicate balance of human existence, reminding us that life can be both stable and unstable. Diaz's introspective and personal approach to art is evident in this thought-provoking sculpture, which serves as a symbolic representation of life's journey. The sculpture's presence at the YMCA is a testament to the facility's commitment to creativity and community engagement.
