Ledger’s Way 2002

Commissioned by the City of New Britain, Connecticut for the entry to Walnut Hill Park as part of the renovation of the Historic Fredric Law Olmsted park.

Wulke was commissioned to create a work that would celebrate the life of Peter Ledger, a life time New Britain residence who held various public positions and was a leader in improving the quality of the built environment in New Britain during the second half of the 20th century.  Wulke incorporated a representational Rose arbor in reflection on Ledger’s reluctant elimination of the rose gardens in Walnut Park.  In the evening the eternal rose arbor is illuminated from within representing the spirit of Peter Ledger and his light of inspiration.
