17. Terrace Planters

Terrace Planters

Gift of Alyne Massey in memory of Jack C. Massey


The Terrace Planters memorialize the location of a large banyan tree. After being diagnosed with an incurable fungus, the massive 100-year-old tree was removed and transported to the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada where it found new life but later died. The circular planters reflect the circumference of the tree, which was over 80 feet tall.
