The celebration opening of 'Layered Lines', a sculpture and gathering place, at Eagle Lake Regional Park is scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7 on the Eagle Lake peninsula (off 63rd Avenue North in Eagle Lake Regional Park).
Twin Cities artist Korrin Lohmann designed 'Layered Lines' to encourage community and gathering. The sculpture was made possible by a donation from Tim Huebsch, according to Three Rivers Park District.
Along with the sculpture installation, Three Rivers Park District removed buckthorn underbrush, added new plantings and rerouted a path.
“The vista overlooking Eagle Lake is the instant focal point when you enter the site. I am inspired by the layered vegetation – the canopy layer, the shrub layer, and the forest forbs and grasses below," Lohmann said of her sculpture. "Layering is also a botanical term referring to the burying of branches to encourage them to take root and emerge as a wholly separate individual plant while still able to get nutrients from the mother plant. This burying and emerging is the inspiration for my project.”
