Memorial Park Obelisks










Kleiner Memorial Park features three 50-foot-tall obelisks. These sculptures were created by a woman named Amber Conger who specializes in art created by welding (http://www.refinerii.com/). The sculptures used materials that were recycled from old railroad supports taken from the original Kleiner family farm, upon which the park was built.


The sculptures are built out of plate steel, with accents of white powder-coated steel.  I think Amber's work is beautiful no matter the size.  She also creates jewelry and other unique one of a kind items.  The pictures above are from her blog as she was creating the sculptures and the ones below were taken by me on Sunday when the Pei's of Adventure and I visited the park.
