Recycled Swan Sculpture

This swan sculpture, according to the locals, was created from trash picked from area waterways, with some of it coming from as far as Lake Superior. The swan stands nearly 30 feet tall and can be seen at the SE corner of Building 19 at Banbury Place (formerly the Uniroyal Tire Plant) while driving on Galloway Street.
