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

by Bill Davenport November 26, 2011

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.
