Ghost Tree Riverbox was originally created by artist Angelica Pozo in 2007. When the tree in which the artwork was placed became diseased and was removed, Pozo created Ghost Tree Sprout Riverbox, which was installed in 2010.
The Dublin Spring was the main source of water for the early pioneers and travelers on the Scioto River. Many beautiful and indigenous plant and animal life thrive in this part of the Scioto, and the water sustains that life.
There is NO PUBLIC PARKING on South Riverview. (Please park in the Dublin library parking lot and follow the directions down High Street on foot, turning toward the river on Spring Hill St. to Riverview; accessing the wooden stairway at the north in of Rvierview St.)
- Walk under the structure that connects both east and west shores

Artist and Credits:
Cleveland-area artist Angelica Pozo sees the Riverboxes project as a natural extension of her body of work. Pozo writes, “For over two decades my work has visually and thematically dealt with the natural world, landscape, plant forms, and the environment.” Pozo is especially interested in the plant world. She states, “Plants are silent for the most part … So, I try to do my part of bringing the plant world to people’s attention.”
Her ceramic works range from shrines that elevate and exalt plants and nature; reliquaries that address conservation as a concept similar to storing seeds for future generations; and clay forms inspired by seedpods and floral shapes. Pozo sees her Riverbox combining all of these elements.
