‘Tis the Season for Shiny Trees: Surls’ White Walking Flower Installed at Rockport Art Center

The Rockport Center for the Arts unveiled James Surls’ “White Walking Flower,” on November 14. Carted in by U-haul, the piece is smaller, and white, but otherwise similar to Surls’ polished steel piece sited in front of Houston’s CAMH.

The Fort worth Modern’s steel-tree-lawn-sculptor of choice was the ubiquitous Roxy Paine.

As I see it, it’s all part of a universal appreciation for trees, combined with an equally universal aversion to raking leaves.
