Chainsaw carving outside/in event in Superior — Broadway Gardens (Hammond & Broadway)

Working Chainsaw Artists, 11am – 5:30pm, Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 15.

Northwestern Middle School student Autumn Howland will join her father, Justin Howland, and fellow carver Jared Nelson on Saturday, May 15 in the second of two all-day chain saw carving events sponsored by the Superior Council for the Arts.  

Justin Howland will complete a towering sculpture depicting people and elements of early history of Superior and the region in the Hammond Avenue and Broadway Street corner of the Broadway Community Gardens. Work on the sculpture will begin May 14 in the Gardens.

The 10-foot sculpture will be a prominent feature of the gardens, along with an already installed mosaic bench by Luke Krisak and Karin Kraemer, and a ceramic brick bench by Carla Stetson.  Raised bed planting boxes, available for rental by community members,  are another feature of the Broadway Gardens, a project of the Superior Council for the Arts. 

An outside/in exhibition featuring chainsaw and other wood carvings will be shown in the Trade and Commerce Building’s North End Arts Gallery, also a project of the SCFTA.

All events are open to the public.
