Whoooo Is Going to Be at the Art Installation in Rio Dell?
“This will be an ongoing evolving art display in the city of Rio Dell, McCauley explained. “They are for purchase. If someone wants to buy a sculpture, I have a little grace period to replace it.” But, he said, “if they aren’t sold one year from the date of installation, they will be replaced with a new sculpture that will stay for another year. Essentially for five years, there will be new sculptures” in Rio Dell.
McCauley’s sculptures are all created from found objects. “Little bits and pieces from here, there, and everywhere,” he explained. “Things that mimic the shapes that I am trying to create—artwork made with simplicity.”
“I’m going to be installing [the owl] about 3 p.m., McCauley said. The Chamber of Commerence is going to be doing a ribbon cutting event at the same time.“The project, called Sculptures on the Avenue, is meant to highlight the strong arts community and to create interest for visitors driving through the area,” said a press release from the City of Rio Dell’s Chamber/Sculpture Committee. “The remaining works will be installed in weeks to come, each depicting themes of the area… The project was undertaken by a committee comprised of community people and city staff, with representation by the Eagle Prairie Arts District, among others.”
