The family wanted to see my art in place and to see everything else too. They were so impressed by my description of the city they wanted to see it for themselves.
They were duly impressed.
We ended up at the Holiday Inn City Centre again — it was hopping for the weekend. It was fun to walk the street and see everyone interacting with the sculptures. People had the brochures and were using them to find sculptures. And vote. Many of the voting boxes were full (full of mine that is — he who travels to Sioux Falls gets to stuff the ballot box — just kidding!).
Unfortunately two pieces had already been damaged. Some people are just idiots!
The kids loved Falls park. We had to drag them away from the rocks. It really is a beautiful spot.
And, my other piece, Samurai Dancer is installed at the Orpheum Theater. It’s in their inner courtyard. They were kind enough to send a photo. Thanks again for sponsoring the piece.
And make sure you stop at the Queen City Bakery too. Delicious chocolate croissants and more.
Scroll down for a photo of Maelstrom in the sun. Sweet.
