The new Pleasant Hill Library will offer both indoor AND outdoor opportunities for exploration, relaxation, contemplation and play. The Design Team will work with artist Evan Shively and his Arborica team to select and create two beautiful, family-friendly sculptural log objects for the Activity Yard.

The pieces in the images shown here are shown for precedent and inspiration, and are not the exact pieces proposed for Pleasant Hill Library. These are Evan Shively’s pieces installed in the Marin Country Mart courtyard in Larkspur, California. The design team and City Subcommittee will work with Evan Shively and his team to create unique log sculptures for the Activity Yard space.
