New and Old Finds Off Main Street

To think that I’ve passed by the corner of Main Street and East Utica hundreds of times and never noticed this large sculpture before is a surprise. It’s found on a grassy hill just beyond the Metro Rail station, yet clearly visible from Main Street. I asked a few artists if they knew anything about the sculptor and no one was even aware that the sculpture even existed. My thought is that the sculpture is part of the 1985 series of commissioned works created in conjunction with the building of the Metro Rail. It’s found near a bus loop where nobody would ever set foot unless they spied it in the distance. Does anyone have any information about the artist or the name of the sculpture?

Not far from the corner mentioned above, is a rain garden recently added at the corner of Michigan and Northampton. The corner has undergone a beautiful transformation and includes features such as a large pergola, a pebble path, a low stone wall and a series of planters. The planters are made of reclaimed wood, adding a nice architectural element to the park while keeping with an almost Asian-esque motif.
