Memorial Stone Sculpture - Everett Arboretum

Isn't Nature Wonderful? Memorial Stone Sculpture
The Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens is seeking a stone sculpture that captures the spirit of Andy Sudkamp, beloved Everett High School biology teacher and arboretum board member.

Andy delighted in nature and sharing his love of the outdoors with his students, bringing them to the arboretum’s horticulture center twice weekly. His favorite phrase, often overheard, was 'isn't nature wonderful?' 
Andy often mentioned that he would love to see basalt columns somewhere in the arboretum, which is the inspiration for this memorial sculpture. 

Timeline: installation complete by April 15, 2019. 

Budget: $10,000 including sales tax 

Location: Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens, 145 Alverson Blvd. Everett, WA 98201 
Referred to as Snohomish County's 'treasure' this 3.5 acre arboretum has ten themed gardens and sculptures throughout the park. 

Installation: a 36-inch square concrete plinth with a steel plate has been installed for this sculpture. City of Everett staff can assist the artist with the installation of the stone sculpture once it is onsite.
