Rebuild everything

Kaiser Permanente generously and immediately came to the support of the artist and both paid for the lost piece and recommissioned the work to be made again.

The one surviving sculpture was refurbished and placed on the garden level at Lone Tree in December of 2013.

Nine months later, the artists' studio and home have been reconstructed and repaired. The giant interactive sculpture has been entirely recreated and can now be seen best by journeying up the "Tree of Life" using the staircase, and gaining some fitness in the process.

The individual pieces are titled, from the bottom up, "The Seed" The Leaves" Glimmer" Abundance" and "The Flower".

Chasing Light at the Butterfly Pavilion

The Butterfly Pavilion is a wonderful place!

Everyone knows of the butterfly pavilion and its famous tarantula Rosie and steamy tropical interior. It now has delightful outdoor gardens and a new entry sculpture titled "Chasing Light" a comment on the quest for the light that plants, invertebrates, and humans share
