Mountain Lion Sculpture Installed in Rio Dell
This is a press release from the City of Rio Dell:
Humboldt County artist Dan McCauley installed his second exhibit in the City of Rio Dell on January 19, 2018 as part of a plan to display art along Wildwood Avenue. McCauley worked with and received support from the City of Rio Dell, Chamber of Commerce and Eagle Prairie Arts District to realize his vision. McCauley’s first display of a Great Horned Owl was installed in October of 2017. Today’s installation brings a Mountain Lion to the community’s main street and future sculptures will include a Bull Elk and a Grizzly Bear.
The art program was made possible by generous donations from Pacific Gas & Electric, The Headwaters Fund, McLean Foundation and local Rio Dell business Root 101 Nursery. Because of this tremendous financial support, no city funds were needed to support the program. Four sculptures will be displayed over a five year period and will be replaced over time as interested buyers purchase the artwork from Mr. McCauley.
