Artist Thomas Sayre has been selected to create the West Woods Project on Phase 4 along the railtrail on the Downtown Greenway.  Thomas is a Raleigh-based artist and architect and has constructed works of art all over the world. To create his art, he uses earth and soil from the ground where his sculptures will eventually stand to form earth casts. On-line public meeting will be planned for May to give the public the opportunity to view his proposal for the West Woods Project and to provide feedback.  Click here to watch a segment from UNC-TV on the process that Thomas uses to create his art.
