This public art project reinforces the significance of and accentuates the vibrant residential/business corridor of 1300 South that joins the adjacent neighborhoods of Yalecrest and Westmoreland Place in Salt Lake City. Christensen took into consideration the architecture, character, and landscape elements of the neighborhoods and to that end, created a series of bas relief cast bronze benches that reflect the beautiful trees lining the streets. Each bench backrest highlights a different tree type found in the neighborhoods – Sycamore, Ash, Elm, Maple – using leaves, branches, and seeds to create the designs for the cutout relief panels. The top rail of each backrest is inscribed with a quote referencing the qualities of the specific tree.
