The sculpture at Castle Rock
If you find yourself on Tucson’s northeast side, you’ve probably seen a tall rocky sculpture on Tanque Verde between Catalina Highway and Houghton which is just outside of a gated community called The Lakes at Castle Rock. Officially known as the Water Tribute Sculpture, the twenty-foot high sculpture has a circular layout and consists of concrete forms that are coated with rock and dirt. A Raleigh, North Carolina artist named Thomas Sayre was commissioned to create the piece when the Bonanza Wash was rerouted during the Tanque Verde Road widening. According to Pima County officials the pieces are actual impressions of the bottom of the Bonanza Wash. Sayre placed rebar in the wash and poured concrete in the forms to create each piece. The $170,000 sculpture was installed for the area neighbors as a tribute to water.
