Marina Lee Sculpture

Cass Street Park was designed and created for the Brady Street Neighborhood in Milwaukee, WI in 1998. Some of the sculpture creatures are functional, like the guardian lights and the lochness play structure. While other sculpture creatures create the entrance, the sign posts and fantasy world for the park setting. The park is enjoyed by neighbors and near by schools.
