Living sculpture adorns improvement project
Work on the living sculpture at the Northeast 102nd Avenue and Halsey Street jughandle continues as the 102nd Avenue Improvement Project nears completion.

From left, operator James Buma shovels the cement for head mason Tim Ramage while laborer Ty Thompson brings another piece to put the finishing touches on the sculpture’s final concrete pedestal. Recycled concrete from the project itself was used to create this and another sculpture at the other end of the project near Southeast Stark Street. When finished, there will be a set of plastic tubes, or wands, at the top that will bend in the wind. Landscaping will be completed with the addition of hundreds of plants, and a number of conifer trees, giving life to the living sculpture.

Begun last spring by contractor Thompson Brothers Excavating, this project expects to wrap up before Nov. 30.
