Artwork Information


COMMUNITY, CONFLUENCE was crafted by hand from a cherry tree salvaged from the Auburn Community and Event Center building site. The artwork responds to the site and symbolizes a place of gathering or coming together for the community. Two large curved shapes created from different parts of the tree intersect. Each individual piece of wood contributes to the strength and shape of the whole, as it flows and moves. The wood is varied and was cut in a minimal way to capture the grain and individuality of the wood. And in doing so also expresses the movement and confluence of the rivers upon which the community of Auburn was first built. 10.5’ x 8’ x .5’ variable edge
