A new exhibit is now on display outside the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science in Evansville, Indiana.

The new sculpture, called "Stargazer," was created by sculptor Gino Miles. 

44News caught up with the artist on Thursday. He shared his inspiration for the piece, which is part of the "Knot Series."

"The Knot Series, I started doing in about 2008," said Miles. "They were inspired by how morning glories tangled themselves to grow."

"I saw this morning glory growing on my fence, and I snipped it," Miles continued. "That winter I was looking for something to make and I made the first morning glory. And that was in 2008, since then I've probably made a couple hundred. And they're all over the world."

In addition to the new outdoor piece, the Evansville Museum says a new solo exhibition of Miles' work will be on display in its Begley Art Gallery. That exhibition will be unveiled at the museum from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
