When I was at WordCamp Columbus 2015 in Columbus, Ohio this weekend, I took an extended lunch break to explore the Lane Avenue Gardens of the Chadwick Arboretum, a less than five minute walk from WordCamp.
It was a nice respite from the conference. And there’s always something new I discover when I walk through the arboretum. Usually I’m delighted to find a new shrub or tree that I’ve missed from prior explorations.
This year it was the sculpture North Shore by David Black, professor emeritus of Ohio State University.
Recognized for his large scale public sculptures, Black has installations throughout the United States, including Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and other cities, as well as Germany and Japan.
I’m not sure how I missed the sculpture in past visits. When you visit the arboretum, look for the sculpture nestled between two spruces in the McCall Colorado Spruce Collection on the south side of the gardens.
