3. Critical Assembly – Critical Assembly is a sculpture by American artist Jim Sanborn which was displayed at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C. in 2003. It included several elements, some actual and some re-created, which were part of the first project at Los Alamos laboratories to design the first atomic bomb. Critical Assembly was displayed at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 2003 during an exhibit entitled Atomic Time, Pure Science, the main part of the sculpture is a three-dimensional representation of components of an atomic bomb. The artwork included a disassembled sphere that had designed to hold the nuclear payload of plutonium and uranium. Sanborn purchased the blank sphere from prior lab employees who had them as surplus after the experiments of the project ceased. The sculpture was surrounded by cables which draped underneath eight tables holding different devices used in the research. The actual cabinet-sized detection equipment used at Los Alamos were also on display, the sounds from geiger counters could be heard within the room, indicating low levels of radiation coming from four radium wrist watches. On the wall was a blue radium clock dial that was frozen at 5,30 a. m, july 16,1945, the time of the Trinity blast in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Sanborn himself was born in 1945, in Washington, D. C, for a number of years preceding the unveiling of Critical Assembly, Sanborn made several trips to Los Alamos, New Mexico. This was the site where the Manhattan Project worked on the worlds first atomic bomb, with the assistance of retired scientists, hobbyists, and collectors, he was able to obtain actual lab equipment used in the atomic bombs research. With this equipment he was able to piece together a life-size re-creation of a hypothetical atomic lab, blake Gopnik from the Washington Post wrote that Sanborns installation brings us face to face, in the most immediate way imaginable, with what it means to make an atom bomb. That may turn out to be the most pressing issue our species will ever face, the Corcoran Gallery of Art curator Jonathan Binstock called the artwork a unique brew of historical accuracy and aesthetic license

6. Loyalty (monument) – Loyalty is a monument to a faithful dog in the Russian city of Tolyatti. In 1995, residents of a Tolyatti began noticing a German Shepherd dog at the edge of South Highway and he was always in the same place, and he rushed at passing cars. Word of the dog spread around the city and the people of the city informally adopted him, further research showed that in the summer of 1995 the dog had been riding in a car with a man and a girl. The car had crashed, the girl was killed on the spot, and the man was taken to a hospital where he died a few hours later and his name was not known, so people began calling him Faithful or Kostya. In the snow and rain, in any weather and time of year, in any weather he always waited and always ran up to all passing vehicles. Everyone who traveled that road from the old city to the new always saw Kostya running along the roadside or resting quietly on the grass, the citizens became very fond of Kostya and turned his story into a living legend. Stories about the dog were published throughout Russia, for seven years Kostya kept his post, but in 2002, he was found dead in the woods. A rumor spread that he had hit by a truck driver who, fearing the wrath of the people, hid his body in the woods to conceal the evidence. However, there were no signs of injury to his body so this rumor is false, Kostya died a natural death, the loss of the popular dog was sad news for many residents. The sculpture was made by Ulyanovsk sculptor Oleg Klyuyev, son of sculptors Anatoly Klyuyev, Klyuyev made the sculpture so that it seems to drivers that he is turning his head for each passing car, hoping to see once more his dead master. The memorial was dedicated on June 1,2003, the 266th anniversary of the founding of Tolyatti, the dedication was attended by about 100 to 150 people, half being members of the Tolyatti Rotary Club which had financed the monument and the others being journalists and private citizens. The monument was the first in Tolyalli not erected for political reasons, today, the memorial is a popular visiting place for newlyweds, as a symbol of unbreakable fidelity. The song Watchdog by Cat Sasha on her 2013 album Intercity Traveler is about Kostya the dog, a Futurama episode, Jurassic Bark, bears similarities to the tale of Kostya, and may have drawn inspiration from him
7. Musica (sculpture) – It was built as part of an urban renewal project for the Music Row neighborhood and unveiled in 2003. Musica is Alan LeQuires largest sculpture commission to date, and currently the largest sculpture group in the United States and it features nine nude figures, male and female, dancing in a circular composition approximately 38 feet tall. There are five figures which spring forth from the base, four more rise up in the center floating above the others. The pinnacle of the statue is a holding a tambourine. The scale of each figure is fourteen to fifteen feet, or more than twice life-size, the dancers and part of the base are cast in bronze. The other part of the base is composed of natural limestone boulders. Much of the work on the statue was actually done at a foundry in Lander, Wyoming, with the pieces transported and assembled onsite. LeQuire writes of his work, Dance is the expression of music. The theme of the sculpture is music, because of the historical and this is the heart of Music Row, the area and the artistic activity for which Nashville is best known. The sculpture conveys the importance of music to Nashville, past, present and future and it is meant to provide a visual icon for the area and for the city as a whole. The theme is music, but the sculpture represents artistic creativity itself, an artistic idea often seems to miraculously and spontaneously burst forth. This is what happens in the sculpture, and the title Musica suggests this since it refers to all the arts of the muses and he also intended for the work to make a statement about Multiculturalism/diversity and racial harmony. The $1. 1-million project, funded by local arts patrons who gave on the condition of anonymity, is being offered as a gift to the city to highlight that very point. Such a permanent tribute, since approved by the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission, the artist is quoted as saying, They wanted to do something lasting for that area, which is such a significant place in the history and future of Nashville. Plus, everyone felt that Music Row, as important as it has been and that was the whole reason for the roundabout itself, and those who created it always imagined a monument that went in the center. The work was due to its depiction of nudity, although according to LeQuire the work is entirely tasteful. One television commentator, Larry Brinton, referred to the statue constantly as the statue after its unveiling. Sutton and others called unsuccessfully for removal of the statue from public view, proponents of the statue were equally vehement in its defense

The bridge was identified as a space that could be transformed through having public artwork, the workshops involved local children and students and was held at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. Historical talks were given and the participants worked with Miller to produce artwork of local scenes, some of these local scenes are featured on the belt, along with drawings produced by Miller of other local public artwork and features.
