AUBURN, Ala. – Toomer’s Corner has stood empty for two months, a lonely reminder of a tradition that has been forever changed. However, the Auburn family will once again be able to celebrate with the iconic tree through a sculpture installed in Auburn Art.
Auburn Art owner Cliff Hare contracted with California-based company NatureMaker, an organization specializing in the art design and engineering of handcrafted architectural trees to create an in-store Toomer’s Oak sculpture. NatureMaker has installations across the United States and worldwide, including Dubai, China and Russia.
“We wanted to do something so future Auburn generations could enjoy one of Auburn’s greatest traditions. NatureMaker has done a fantastic job of recreating the iconic Toomer’s Oak,” Hare said.
