"VOLUMES" Hedberg Public Library, Janesville, WI, CorTen books, rock wall, landscape materials 80 ‘ x 40’ x 20’


"Volumes" is a series of sculptural elements placed in a landscaped berm formed by a rock wall. Wrapping around the rear parking area of the library, the berm is at its highest point at the corner, and tapers at each end. Three and four foot high CorTen steel books are clustered within granite boulders, plants, shrubs and groundcovers. The books bear in relief the titles of popular children's books, as chosen by the children who use the Hedberg Library.
