“Leaf it to Us” is a community-driven public sculpture led by the remarkable Sinéad Ludwig-Burgess, combining science, nature, and art in an interactive visual display. Participate in creating a welded steel and mixed media sculpture that draws parallels between human and plant cellular structures, emphasizing the importance of community collaboration and creativity. Join us, pick a blank magnetic shape, add your designs with green markers and pencil crayons, and place your masterpiece on the leaf blade sculpture to complete the pattern. Together, let’s create an organic, free-standing sculpture that embodies the intimate relationship between humans and plants.
