Artist Christine Bourdette is commissioned to create beautiful interactive sculptures for Carpenter Park. They will be along the pond and paths on the north, east and west west sides.
The natural setting of Carpenter Park; its pond, community garden and adjacent farms inspired the concept. Inhabiting parks and lakes; a swan's elegant presence connects imagination to contemplative presence. The transformation of "Ugly Duckling" into grace and beauty represents re-invention, renewal and growth. Mirroring transformation of a new West Cary as we enter the Spring season of re-growth, the swan concept came to life.
Each form surrounds an elliptical free-standing seat, big enough for two nestled inside folded wings. The arch of the swan’s neck is 6’3” high with clearance for children and adults.
The sculptures will be an inviting icon for all to enjoy. CVA is raising funds this year to complete this very special installation for Cary Citizens. Our goal with your help is One Hundred Hundreds!
