The Friends of Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation commissioned Waller-Foushee Studios to create an artistic bench along the Bolin Creek Greenway in memory of Chapel Hill resident and former Town Council member Joe Herzenberg. Herzenberg was a noted advocate for the environment, civil liberties, and the interests of low-income people, and he played a great part in the enactment of Chapel Hill's tree protection ordinance, the creation of the Chapel Hill Greenways system, and the preservation of the Chapel Hill downtown historic district. The bench is located along the newest section of the Bolin Creek Greenway trail just west of MLK Jr. Blvd., in an alcove-like space of a curved retaining wall.
