Three metal domes are soon-to-be installed in Pearsall Park as shade structures. They are inspired by Native American Wickiups, temporary but strong domed dwellings made of bent green branches, hides, and thatch. In artist Buster Simpson’s modern take on a wickiup, steel pipes form the dome and metal mesh provides shade.  Geometric benches will be placed beneath the structures.
