Susan Paige of Orlando, Fla.  was one
of many readers who correctly identified this as a 50-foot high,
freestanding group of curvilinear poles at Festival Plaza in downtown
Auburn that supports three colorful awnings. She wrote,“I used to sit
under them each and everyWednesday night when I wasamember of
the Auburn Community Band.”The awnings are due to be hung soon.
One of the three remaining of the six that were originally purchased has
been out for repair.The entire structure, from the poles to the fabric,was
designed and made by artist Charles Duvall of Rockport for $170,000.
That included two sets of the mesh canopies.Only three have survived,
the red, white and teal.The PublicWorks Department has requested
money to replace the aging awnings. In a random drawing, Paige was
selected as the winner.
