“Water is Life”, by local artist Karen Rycheck, will be installed on the Bandersnatch Trail in upper Lithia Park. The piece is a mosaic cairn that mimics the form of stacked stones and shows several interrelated ecosystems of the Ashland watershed. The piece, commissioned by the Watershed Art Group with funding from the Haines and Friends Foundation was approved by the Public Art Commission and the City Council.
The community is invited to attend the installation on Saturday, June 10 at 4:00 p.m. at the Bandersnatch trailhead.
Organizers note that parking is limited and encourage attendees to park at Lithia Park or at the reservoir and to carpool.
