Ghost was made by Andy Wachs and Erik Gerding in 2007. Crafted from an old crame and bucket used to dredge the river so logs could flow freely to the saw mill, Ghost is upcycling at its finest. With the crane arm slightly tilted off its axis and the bucket oriented for aesthetics rather than accuracy, the piece is open to interpretation. The artists say “the sculpture is either rising or subsiding. Rising, as with the Old Mill District’s tranformation, or subsiding, as the past is lost to history.” How do you view Ghost?

Summer Lovin' at the Old Mill District

Summer lovin’, had me some fun. Well, then you must have been on a date on a long, glorious summer evening in Bend, Oregon! For the most fun with your favorite person, we like to start with a wine tasting at Va Piano Vineyards in the Old Mill District where they have a patio tucked away in back that sits right along the Deschutes. While you’re in the neighborhood, create your own ‘Art Walk’ any night of the week with the large number of galleries in the area. Might as well hang out on the river again with a romantic dinner on the patio at Greg’s Grill as the sun begins to set over the mountains, before you hold hands on your stroll to a movie. Wrap up your low-key, high-impact evening with a nightcap or dessert at Level 2, perched above it all with your very favorite person.
