Tree of Life and Kan Sculptures

These artworks are intended to be viewed together as a grouping and were originally part of a major outdoor solo exhibition entitled “Interconnected” that occurred in 2010-12 at Millennium Park in Chicago. In 2012, the artist made the decision to donate each of the six public artworks to cities across the United States. The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs put together the proposal to bring the artworks to Freedom Park. Fortunately, the City of Atlanta proposal was chosen by the artist and exhibition curators (Ed Ulir and Lucas Cowan) as one of several cities to receive this permanent cultural gift of public artworks.
