Cornelia Parker’s sculpture is titled Reveille (French for “wake up”) after the bugle call historically used to awaken troops. With its pair of bugles — one intact, the other flattened, rendering it useless for its traditional purpose — the piece poignantly commented on the history of Fort Point, a military site that was never called into action.
