Connections: The Neighborhood Project Comes to the Web

November 22, 2010

Connections @ Ellwanger & Barry Park
The Connections Project comes to the internet with a series of pages centered on the Pear Tree sculpture designed for Ellwanger & Barry Park by artist Craig Wilson.  Our Connections web includes the story of the Ellwanger & Barry Park’s renaming which took place at the 2009 Taste of the Neighborhood event.  We also introduce the first in a series of illustrated timelines: Center of a Neighborhood which features the history of the playground. Along with  the recent  story of how this new sculpture honoring Ellwanger & Barry came to reside in the park, Connections includes the contributions of residents, adults and children, who illustrated their own Connection to this project. The article “Why a Pear Tree?”  presents more illustrated history:  the significance of the pear – which may have been the most important of the various fruit stocks in the inventory of the Mt Hope Nursery.  So click on the graphic at right to go to the Connections pages.  And after you browse,you might consider extending this project by letting us know about your connection to this neighborhood using your own words, picture or video.
