New Art Installation on Bergen.

The huge raised bed on Bergen and Smith has been transformed yet again. This time displaying a pole, inspired by "Liberty Pole", which was s ship's mast planted in the ground during the Revolutionary War as a symbol of protest. It was also inspired by Walt Whitman's poem "The Centenarian's Story". The piece, by Sasha Chavchavadze, is called "Battle Pass-Revolution II". It was getting dark when we took these pictures so they are a little hard to read. Here are the quotes on the sides. "Do you hear the clank of the muskets?", "The years recede", and "In the midst of you". Check it out for yourself though. It's pretty cool.
