FEATURED PROJECT:

Memory: Fairmount Park
Bart Shaw

"Memory: Fairmount Park" is a visual reference to the historic neighborhood fabric.  Along Henderson, sculptural stepped tables are located where the steps and porches of three houses once stood.  The artwork re-establishes a gathering space for neighbors and visitors, and is currently being installed in Fairmount Park.

For more information on the artwork and artist, see our Featured Project page.
