Art in Nature : Nature in Art
Found this amazing sculpture of the Singing Trees in Vail last week at the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.
These trees were killed by the lodgepole pine beetle that has devastated many pines here in CO. The artists (Ben Roth, sculpture designer, and Brad Watsabaugh, creator) dissected the trees longitudinally from the top down with chainsaws, creating benches with the remaining half of the split trees.
