Click here for Dimitri Gerakaris' updated Wall Relief site:

This relief sculpture by Dimitri Gerakaris commemorates Longfellow's "Spreading Chestnut Tree", which stood at this very location, now the property of the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. The crown of the tree was designed so ivy grows within it and changes with the seasons. The anvil and hammer were made first and were actually used to make part of the sculpture - so part of the artwork made itself!

56 Brattle Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Forged and color-galvanized steel with forged bronze. 14x24x1.5 ft (4.3x7.3x5 m). 1989.
