The public art project committee selected Ken Mcall to create strong, fun artwork that represents children, families, community, and the people that live in Park Place. The artwork is thought-provoking and inspires viewers of all ages. The artwork is large enough to be seen by vehicular traffic but can also be enjoyed by park visitors.
Place in Time, is a free-standing sculpture representing generations and the changing dynamics within the Park Place community. A center tree containing elm tree-shaped leaves with names of streets in Park Place will move in the wind. At times, the spinning motion forms the shape of a heart. Three time capsules will be located in the base to enable ongoing community engagement creating a vehicle for timeless interaction while promoting creative thought and community tradition.
Three figures surrounding the tree signify the roots of Park Place; the past, present and future generations. Each figure has a specific map engraved on the surface; the largest showing a hand-drawn 1918 map of Park Place and Munson Park, the medium displaying a modern-day map, and the smallest showing a simplified unlabeled map representing the future. The sculpture is made of powder coated steel, aluminum and brass installed on a circular concrete pad.
