#14 Along the Roundabout Art Route
Earth Song was made by Bruce West in 2005. The creator of Earth Song, formerly the artist in residence at Lewis and Clark College, is an avid whitewater rafter and references from the natural landscape abound in his work. Featured in two other pieces of public art in Bend (Cascade Landscape on the northwest end of Drake Park, as well as Cutting Board at Cascade Culinary Institute on the COCC campus), light and reflection play a large role in West’s art. He explains the perfect time to view this sculpture of seven, 17′ columns is mid-afternoon as you head toward town.
