How are you spending your Sunday? One famous weekend afternoon has been immortalized in bushes: An Ohio park features topiaries that recreate Georges Seurat's masterpiece, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

Topiary Park is in downtown Columbus, a five-hour drive from where the original pointillist work hangs in the Art Institute of Chicago. Created by sculptor James T. Mason and then-wife Elaine, the project began in 1989 with the digging of the pond to represent the Seine River, and was completed in 1992.
