Art Installation and Spring!

Friday, April 17, 2015

Those first warm days of spring are intoxicating. I want to play outside all day long, everyone is restless for the warm sun on skin feeling. This also brings the anticipation of our landscape work beginning soon! The oasis of the Wassenberg is about to expand to our out-of-doors very soon, and an oasis it will be. Green grass, grouped plantings, a fishpond, meandering paths and many trees will create a mini-central park in downtown Van Wert. Seth Baker, Van Wert County Foundation Secretary who is also a landscape designer, further designed the grounds. A sculpture, reflecting our agricultural roots will be installed on the southwest corner of the building as our second of many sculptures that will grace the property eventually. This sculpture, which utilizes found steel objects, was created by Richard Morgan of Wauseon and stands almost eight feet high.
