Golden Rod , 2010

by Vanessa Schutte


Mediums: Steel

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall, southeast corner of 14th & Douglas, street level.

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Donated by DLR Group and SiteScapes, Inc. Inspiration for the design was the simple beauty of Nebraska’s State Flower the Goldenrod and the desire to create a bench that focuses on act of communicating. The “bench” is comprised of six individual curved forms of varying height. The sweeping arcs of the seats wrap the corner of 14th and Douglas Street creating space for conversation both on the street side of the bench and within the park. Three of the goldenrods cantilever from the earth reaching into the sidewalk and the park reflecting the reaching nature of the Goldenrod. The Goldenrod is constructed of a 1/2" steel framework, with a 10 gauge steel seating area. It is a fully welded unit and is surface mounting with a 1/2" stainless steel mounting plate. The finish is sandblasted and pretreated powder coat finish; polyester, exterior rated RAL 1037 "yellow".
