Artworks by Wayne Hansley & Tyler Denton with support from Raleigh Arts

Have you spotted the new public art in Fred Fletcher Park?

Local artists Wayne Hansley and Tyler Denton collaborated to turn two tree stumps at Fred Fletcher Park into works of art!

A tree stump turned into a compass

One stump was made into a compass (right), and another stump (above) was transformed into a working sundial featuring lines representing where sunset and sunrise are located at the winter and summer solstices.

The works of art are located in the park near the tennis courts. Check out the location of the stumps below:
