This steel gate to the Municipal Court Building depicts a landscape scene with a man sitting under a tree. A pond, birds, the sun and other figures are cut out of the metal. "I see things and they’ll speak to me awhile, sometimes I’ll even have a dream about them, and then after awhile it comes out in the drawing,” artist Harold Rittenberry explains, noting in the case of many of the tree drawings, the work is from his memory of trees and woods that are no longer there. "It’s a protest in my mind about deforestation,” he continues. "I draw the trees so people can see them, and it puts it in their minds how beautiful they are."
