Some interesting items are hanging from trees in Burlington's City Hall Park, but they're not holiday decorations -- They're jellyfish.
The jellyfish are part of Arts in the Park, a changing exhibit run by Burlington City Arts. The squishy looking creatures are the work of artist Abby Manock, who calls them Airborne Jellyfish. Some are tiny and others are huge -- all made from a variety of common materials, even phone cords.
"They're getting a lot of attention -- all good attention so far. They're relatively new. We just put them up this past Tuesday. It's just a really fun way for us to revisit and see the world that we're living in. A fun way to be in the park and look up and see something new," said Ashley Landers with Burlington City Arts.
The exhibit is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The jellyfish are staying in the park until February.
