In a truly collaborative design, sculptor David Phillips and landscape architect Craig Halvorson transformed an intersection previously used for bus parking into a city park. The park includes fieldstones with bronze inlays, artist designed wrought-iron fence, pavings, and beds of flowers.
The collaborators organized the configuration of amenities and landscape elements around a spiral form. A form borrowed directly from nature, the graceful curve of the spiral has been admired throughout the ages for its simple elegance and has served as basis for ornament in many cultures. Reflecting the intimate connection between form and function, art and life, the spiral is a common motif in David Phillips' art.
David Phillips is well known for his public sculpture and his collaborations with landscape architects. His work often explores the resilience of nature, incorporating organic elements, such as stones and trees, with cast materials.
