The journey, installation and unveiling of the 15 foot Other Side of Eden

This presentation shows the incredible transportation of both the fifteen foot tall Other Side of Eden from sculptor Andrew DeVries’ studio to the home of Tom and Mary Steffek Blaske in Ann Arbor, Michigan in September. 2017. The unveiling at their home took place on October 15th.

My deepest thanks to Tom and Mary for this commission – a work that took three years to complete and the work that first appeared in my mind’s vision some 37 years ago.

Also my thanks to Allen Williams of Chester Granite whose skills  made the the transport and installation of the sculpture possible.

Most of all my gratitude to my wife Patricia Purdy whose belief in the artwork never fails.
