Greensboro Center City Park

Center City Park, view of bird pitcher and chick from the fountains

We visited Greensboro on Sunday.  Our goal was to see Fred Johnston's bird pitcher and Carol's chicks.  They own Johnston and Gentithes Art Pottery in Seagrove, NC.  He made these a couple of years ago for placement in the Center City Park, Greensboro, NC.,  as a public art commision.  There are some great pictures on their website , showing the process of Fred making the pitcher and Carol forming the chicks.  We were excited to finally see these works of art in their permenant location.  The day was beautiful and there were many people walking around with their families, throwing frisbee, and taking pictures.
