Vase-like sculpture planned for Huron River

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – A porous, vase-like sculpture of bronze rods is planned for the Huron River in the University of Michigan’s Nichols Arboretum.

Artist William Dennisuk’s sculpture is scheduled to be installed next week on the river in Ann Arbor. He says it draws attention to “our relationship with water, and by extension, the larger environment.”

Dennisuk spent eight months tailoring the project to meet city and state environmental standards.

The sculpture is part of Dennisuk’s three-phase Vessel Project. In late April, the first phase was installed outside the College of Engineering on North Campus. A second is being installed Wednesday afternoon in Gallup Park.

The sculptures will be on display through October.
