Description: 

Lance Belanger and Kitty Mykka have made a deceptively simple piece that divides the path into two branches by laying out a line of stones in the middle. The 'art path' they have created has three sections, one with the stone broken into fist-sized pieces, a second of smooth stone cut lengthwise, and a third of jute bags filled with small stone pieces.
