Pollinator Salad Days

Lisa Cameron Russell
Glenmoor Pond, Taft Hill Rd. and Glenmoor Dr.

The Glenmoor Pond project improved the overall aesthetic, enhanced landscaping, added visual interest, and created better pedestrian access and movement in this detention pond and neighborhood recreation site.

The project team worked with artist Lisa Cameron Russell to create the concept for Pollinator Salad Days. The project will stretch the length of existing guardrail at Glenmoor Pond, creating a focal point in the space for both pedestrians and motorists on Taft Hill Road.

Pollinators are the theme for this project. Elements added to the guardrail are inspired by the illustrations of pollinators created during workshops with 2nd grade art students from the adjacent Polaris Expeditionary Learning School. Complementary whimsical floral imagery by the artist will be added to complete the composition and add structural support. The sculptural elements will be fabricated from weathered steel.
