“I Spy, with my little eye, a piece of art,” writes Nick Mosher, “in front of the band shell in West Park.” It’s “one of two new steel tree sculptures” there, writes Louisa Griffes. Called TREEform, the sculptures were created “by artist Traven Pelletier [of] Environmental Art.” “There is one tree at “either end of the bench seating,” adds Patricia Alvis. It’s all “part of the renovation of beautiful West Park.”

“They are really eye-catching!” writes Sue Monet. “Very cool!” agrees Sharon Kuhn. But Lakshmi Narayanan is withholding judgment: “Not sure if I really like them or not,” she writes.

The trees were instantly familiar to several west siders, including Lynn Yates, David Guidas (who sees them daily outside his window), and John Van Volkinburg (who views them on regular jogs). Nearby resident Robert LaLonde writes, “the construction on the home for the new trees woke me up at 7:00 a.m. every day last summer!” LaLonde isn’t the only one who is glad the construction is done: “I can hardly wait to hang out there, listening to music, this summer,” writes Lenny Dale. “I’ve been eyeing those trees every time I drive down Seventh,” says Monet Tiedemann. “I’m looking forward to spending some time at West Park this summer.”

We received thirty-five correct entries identifying the West Park artwork. Long-time entrant Tom Jameson won the random drawing. He looks forward to playing bassoon with the Civic Band when it returns to the West Park band shell this summer (see Events, June 26)–and to enjoying his $25 gift certificate at Seva.
