"Rainbow Forest" Sculpture
- 945 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Pkwy., Athens, GA 30601
Located on the North Oconee River Greenway, "The Rainbow Forest" was designed and installed by Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Kovacs and was dedicated to Athens-Clarke County on August 19, 2021. Made up of 36 tall, brightly-colored columns, "The Rainbow Forest" is intended to serve as a public example of creative architecture.
"To me, the Greenway is a park, and I didn't want to just drop some object into that setting," Kovacs told the Athens Banner-Herald. "I think this art complements what is already there, kind of a like a forest within a forest."
