Tree of Five Seasons: Love It or Hate It?
The Tree of Five Seasons is probably Cedar Rapids' most iconic landmark. The sculpture that stands downtown is also arguably the most polarizing piece of art in the state.
The 61-foot, steel sculpture -- which is officially named the Tree of Life -- has been lampooned for years by citizens.
Is it art?
Is it a toilet brush?
The logo and sculpture were designed by Gary Anderson. Anderson, along with other citizens, raised more than $800,000 to build the sculpture in 1996. It has been a prominent part of the city's skyline ever since.
So what do you think of the Tree of Five Seasons? Love it? Hate it? Laugh about it?
