New tree statue at Gregg Park begins to take shape


You’re used to seeing art sculptures at parks in Vincennes.

Now, Gregg Park will be home to a tree statue, thanks to a donation from the Vincennes Moose Lodge.

Work is already underway carving a tree stump into the statue near Gregg Park’s entrance.

Vincennes Mayor Joe Yochum says the tree stump will be transformed into a horse because there used to be a horse track nearby.

The tree is one that had been damaged and instead of taking it out, the decision was made to turn it into a permanent piece of art for the community.
