Located in Greenbelt, Maryland at the MD Community Center, the gardens focuses on educating the public about healthy food options, sustainable growing practices, and water quality through experiential learning, demonstrations, & workshops. The building is a historic Art Deco Building, thus the artwork uses aluminum as a nod to the style. The heron sits on a model of the immediate eco system in the marsh that it inhabits. As a sustainably focused artwork it was proposed to go next to the Three Sisters demonstration gardens in the back of the building. The sculpture will be 5 to 6 feet tall. The central plates would 1" thick aluminum with other plates built on top of it.
