History bench approved for George Rogers Avenue in Duluth

The Duluth Public Art Commission has set aside $12,000 in public art acquisition funding for a “history bench” art project. After coordinating with the George Rogers Avenue lighting and landscape plans, the city has chosen to place the oak tree sculpture/woodcarving project along the west side of George Rogers Avenue. Funding includes moving, engineering,

site work, carving, and installation of the Willow Oak sculpture project.

The concept, designed by William Sillesky, will feature the city’s continental divide statue, train museum, Duluth Wildcats logo, an American flag, and the city hall clock tower.
