From the Rockford Park District brochure..
Jerry Peart works with metal sculptures in both large and small-scale. Since the early 1970s he has created over 35 large creations, including sculptures for New Era in the Chicago Federal Plaza. Jerry was inspired by the concept of the tropical conservatory thriving in the Midwest, and created Wild Flower to grace the entry of the Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens.
