Hurricane Katrina Tree Sculptures
Drive down Highway 90 and gaze upon dozens of what were once beautiful live oaks, but have since died due to Hurricane Katrina! Now you will see - Tree Trunks transformed into sculpted works of art! International award winning "chainsaw artist" Dayton Scoggins of Mississippi, award winning "wood sculptor" Marlin Miller of Florida, and Dayle Lewis of Indiana sculpted a variety of marine-related objects out of these dead trees, with Miller sculpting the most.
The City of Biloxi spearheaded the campaign - and in a quote by Mayor Holloway - "and in this particular project, we're giving a second life to something Mother Nature attempted to destroy! We were dealt lemons and now we're going to make lemonade!" The tree-sculpture gardens are located all along scenic Highway 90! Begin a couple blocks east of the Biloxi Lighthouse and continue down the Highway with several other sculptures created in the median further west. There are now approximately 50 sculptures throughout the Mississippi Gulf Coast with the world's largest eagle sculpture standing 17-foot-tall and located in War Memorial Park on Highway 90 in Pass Christian!
