Mercer Island Art – New Outdoor Installation

Mercer Island Deer Topiary photo by Michelle Rubin Have you seen the latest outdoor art installation on Mercer Island, over by Freshy’s Seafood and the Island Corporate Center? The deer shaped topiaries, dubbed Gazing, gives homage to the island’s own deer population. Each one is made up of 2 juniper trees trimmed into the deer shape, and will need to be pruned a couple of times a year to keep their shape.

What are your thoughts about this latest installation, which was paid for out of the city’s 1% for Arts Fund? Please share in the comments below.
