“Magnolia” by Matthew Albright

The Shaker Historical Society is currently exhibiting a sculpture, “Magnolia,” designed by Matthew Albright.  This life-size sculpture is 100% handmade from recycled materials that are infused with the history of Shaker Heights. The copper water lines that comprise the structure of the tree were removed from Shaker Heights neighborhoods during construction and remodeling projects.  The sturdy base which supports this sculpture was once used as a curb along Fairmount Boulevard.  This beautiful work of art can be seen in front of The Shaker Historical Society.  To read more about Matthew Albright and his designs, visit his website!
