We have been burying up-ended culverts for barriers or planters on the Creamery Building property for years. I started visualizing one large culvert in particular as a container one might see on an artist’s work table, filled with the tools used to do their art pieces. My family got together and started making giant replicas of the artist’s tools: pencil, paint bush, ruler, eraser, scissors. To finish off the piece, we painted the culvert and added the tools.
We hope passersby enjoy the Artist’s Tools. Who knows, maybe that culvert will turn into something else someday soon?
