Local artist Craig David created the landscape and stone work “Keepers of the Garden” for the Kirchbak Sculpture Garden in 2001. The focal point of the work is two figures, a man and a nude woman, carved as a relief into the stone. They can “lend a whimsical touch of Eden to suburbia” (You Are Here: Exploring Art in the Suburbs) or be kind of weird. With the building fragments and broken stonework they seemed more like fallen Greek or Roman gods to me.

And it seems once again the sign is wrong, this time getting Craig David’s name backwards: David Craig (which is a pretty common mistake when you’ve got two first names).

What do you think?
