The Wallace Triangle Neighborhood's small, but beautiful green space known as Curtis Island showcases the steel sculpture "Square Root" by artist Greg Meyer. Lifelong resident Sam Curtis tended plantings there until his death in 2005. In memory of Sam, the sculpture was selected and donated in 2007 by his family to the neighborhood because it replicates the beauty of the adjacent trumpeter vine that climbs the light pole and they found it to be an interesting juxtaposition of nature's art to man-made art in a rigid medium.
