More Nature in the City? Maybe, Via Public Art
"Ongoing in San Francisco is artist Patrick Dougherty's The Upper Crust, a series of conical forms for which the artist collected 18,000 pounds of freshly cut willow saplings, which he then wove into the branches of a bunch of sycamore trees on a plaza across from San Francisco's City Hall"
In Houston at the end of this month, locals and visitors can brave the sure-to-be sweltering heat and head to Discovery Green, a new-ish public park smack in the middle of downtown, to see Light As Air, a collection of inflatable art from artists around the country."
"Finally, Indianapolis is currently hosting a bunch of works by a South Bend-born artist, George Rickey, who spent his entire career constructing massive, stainless-steel sculptures carefully designed to move in the wind."
