Sugar House Benches

In response to a national call for proposals, artist Eric Thelander of Albuquerque, New Mexico, designed and fabricated the benches for the sidewalks of the Sugar House Business District. Thelander’s work addresses both creativity and comfort, in a fine example of craftsmanship, with the fabricated metal framework and the detail and finish of the concrete “cushions.” Thelander designed these outdoor “sofas” as a tribute to the history of furniture sales – both new and second-hand – that are an integral component of the character of Sugar House.
