On May 4, 2014, the Knoxville Museum of Art (KMA) in Knoxville, Tennessee, debuted Richard Jolley’s new, monumentally scaled sculpture commissioned and created especially for the newly refurbished Ann and Steve Bailey Hall. Measuring 105 feet long by 12 feet tall, Cycle of Life is one of the largest figurative glass and steel assemblages in the world.
