Created from walnut, McNaughton originally was commissioned for $8,000 from Bristol-Meyers Squibb where it hung in the lobby of the Evansville offices until came down for remodeling and donated to Evansville. ‘Waves of the Future’ spent three years in storage until this 16-foot-long wooden sculpture found its home on the East wall of Victory Theatre’s Sixth Street Lobby.On June 13, 2017, ‘Waves of the Future’ will become ‘Showtime’ and will be given a more visible placement with more protection inside Victory Theatre. This piece, made of walnut because this region is known for its Walnut Trees, was originally created, and named to represent how close the piece was to the river and the indicative of the future of medicine. The new name, ‘Showtime,’ will represent the variety of shows that are held at Victory Theatre. Today, if McNaughton was asked to create this same rhythmic tubular wooden design, it would be commissioned for anywhere between $20,000 to $25,000.
