Artist Statement

33 Oaks is a collection of stainless-steel leaf sculptures representing 33 species of oaks that are native to Georgia. Nestled amongst the native grasses along the Eastside Trail, these leaves highlight the diversity of flora in the region, and spark dialogues about the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum.


Artist Bio

The sculptures were created by artist David Landis. You may already be familiar with his work: Landis created the rhino, “Northern White,” at the Freedom Park spur trail and the sculpture “Cycles” at Rose Circle Park. This particular installation was commissioned by our friends at Trees Atlanta and will be a part of the continuing exhibition on the Atlanta BeltLine.
