Artist Eric Powell designed and fabricated a stainless steel poetry plaque display for the winners of the “critter” poetry contest. Five metal sculptural displays are anchored securely into the ground. Each display integrates two plaques, each with an engraved poem by the poetry winners in their own written script. Each will also feature a three-dimensional sculpture of the animal on the top middle platform between the poem plaques.
The displays are made of darkened stainless steel to deter the theft and vandalism suffered after the original bronze versions of the sculptures were installed. Five surveillance cameras have also been installed and will record 24/7.
