“Confluence,” Fremont Park, 16th Street between P & Q, Sacramento, CA.
Two vessels, as a tribute to John C. Fremont’s contributions to Sacramento and Western history. While his long career was not without controversy (he was demoted by Lincoln, for example, for his premature support of abolition, and also was responsible for the deaths of several local natives), his impact on Western expansion was huge.
The each 2,000 pound vessel conveys visual histories from Fremont to contemporary times, including the natural history of this region: from a Great Blue Heron to traffic, from salmon to Apple.
More projects to come.
