This project was the result of an Artist Initiative Grant I received from the MN State Arts Board. My project was to create a stainless steel sculpture that would act as a pilot project for a public art on public trails initiative I wanted to start. My purpose was to get people thinking about trails as a great venue for public sculpture.
I've gotten fantastic feedback from the people in Monticello, who seem to be very pleased with their new sculpture and it's home in a beautiful new park. I'm already being contacted by other cities interested in adding art to their trails, so so far, I'd say the project was a success!
