The blue color caught my eye as I walked down the sidewalk, on my way to lunch with family members at one of our favorite restaurants.
I smiled as I looked up and saw bright bluebirds with yellow legs perched on the structure, peering out over the shopping center area.
Not real birds, rather metallic birds precisely placed to capture your attention in the Sunny Tree Top sculpture in the Kohl’s shopping center in Canton Township, Michigan.
Sunny Tree Top
Created by metal sculptor Gregory Mendez from Decatur, Indiana, Sunny Tree Top is one of ten sculptures in the 13th Annual Sculpture Exhibit on Ford Road in Canton, Michigan.
The sculpture is created entirely from steel. Here’s the full sculpture in front of the store.
Sponsored by the Canton Downtown Development Authority with assistance from the Canton Public Art Committee, sculptures in the exhibit can be seen along Ford Road in front of businesses from Haggerty to Canton Center Road.
Each piece has been created by a Midwest artist and is on exhibit for a year.
The exhibit is part of the Midwest Sculpture Initiative (MSI), which provides outdoor sculpture exhibitions throughout the Midwest.
