The Smither Park Memory Wall
Spanning the entire 400-ft length of Smither Park, the Memory Wall was the first element of the park to be built. Each section of the memory wall is divided into panels - 60 in total. Artists from across the world have contributed to panels on the Memory Wall, many in tribute to a loved one, a favorite vacation destination, a memory, their favorite animal, and anything else you could think of. Artists have spent anywhere from a few months to a few years creating their panels.
Spend some time soaking in the Memory Wall and really looking closely at the materials that were used to create the mosaics - they may surprise you!
