Point of Interest Details

Artist: Aaron Galbraith

About: Carole Finn, local artist and community champion, donated the dry stone bench in memory of her late husband Don Finn, who died in 2008. Don loved to walk in the woods and in the Sculpture Forest. Measuring 7 feet by 3 feet, the granite top on the bench weighs 1,400 pounds, with the many smaller rocks weighing 4,500 pounds. In the centre of the bench there is a mossy stone collected from the Finn’s farm. This style of dry stone structure is a more decorative form (compared to C to C). Aaron split the stones by hand to create the even and aesthetically pleasing surface.

Materials: Locally quarried granite.
