"Daphne Garden"
Dessa Kirk, Chicago

"Years ago, the artist disassembled a Cadillac bolt by bolt to create a lily. Now, these lilies have become the mythical figure Daphneis, a figure in Greek mythology that was turned into a Laurel Tree by her father to save her from being captured. In this garden there are three figures that are dancing as they are being transformed from a woman into a tree. During the summer months Daphne's skirt will also transform from a metal lattice into a blanket of vines that climb from the earth. This garden is sponsored by the Union League Club of Chicago."
