A contemporary homage to an apple orchard that was once located on Fenton Street's Urban Park. The artist, Michael Enn Sirvet wanted to interpret the lacy nature of the view one would have looking up through the canopy of an orchard of apple trees and recall the circular shapes of apples. He also wanted the sculpture surrounds, the trees and buildings, to be visible through the negative space of the sculpture so that those surroundings would become part f the sculpture.
The sculpture is a serpentine, curved wall that tops out at approximately ten feet in height and nearly twelve feet in length.
