Topiary

February 9, 2008

Old School for The Deaf Park

Columbus, Ohio

The building in the background is the old Ohio School for the Deaf (info here) – the surrounding park features a topiary garden with figures fleshing out an Impressionist painting. From the website linked above:

“Georges Seurat’s famous post impressionist painting, A Sunday On The Island Of La Grande Jatte, is created in topiary. It is the only topiary interpretation of a painting in existence. This ‘landscape of a painting of a landscape’ consists of 54 topiary people, eight boats, three dogs, a monkey, a cat and a real pond.”
