Location: 103 South Iowa; North side of the Lafayette Senior Center on Simpson Street
Materials: Wood and Moss
Made from locally sourced materials, Ascent is an staggering arrangement of shaved pine logs with a meticulously carved mountain range protruding from the top. A combination of wood, moss, and metal, this sculpture holds a fine balance of a craftsman’s skill and the ebb and flow of nature. Adorned with a sustainable moss colony, the artwork is a living and breathing ecosystem that will adapt with the mountain surrounding it. Citizens are encouraged to give it love and water.
See & Respond
Following the installation of the sculptures, area poets and visual artists will be invited to participate in a juried art show, “See and Respond!” where artists create a piece inspired by one of the sculptures. There will be cash prizes awarded in multiple categories. Visit the See & Respond page for more information
