TREE OF KNOWLEDGE
by Jon Barlow Hudson

Description:

my local community of Yellow Spring, Ohio, wanted to have one of my sculptures. since we already have a fountain, the yellow spring, i determined that the town is a tree town, with not just a tree committee but it is surrounded by forests and parks: Glen Helen. it is also a community of education: various schools like Antioch College, and other such institutions and teachers along with writers, publishers, and artists and engineers and the like. i determined that a tree of books would best represent the community. the trunk is molded from real books and the foliage is fabricated bronze sheet metal. on the sculpture there is down low a bespeckled " book worm", in the foliage there is a "tree house" and a "book plate" in reference to Antioch Bookplate Co.
