Posted: October 21, 2015 Sculpture Tour to announce winners
Tomorrow (Thursday) Sculpture Tour will announce the winning sculpture for the 2015 People's Choice Award, as well as Best of Show Bronze and Best of Show Other Materials. The announcement will take place in front of Hobbs Ice Arena at 1pm.
At the same, staff will dedicate the permanent installation of "Going for the Goal", a bronze hockey sculpture by Colorado artist Dee Clements, in front of Hobbs. The sculpture was voted People's Choice 2014.
According to Executive Director Julie Pangallo, "Each year, Sculpture Tour purchases the People's Choice sculpture and gifts it to the city. It's our way of helping the City of Eau Claire grow its' permanent collection. The city decides where the permanent installation will be. The hockey player in front of Hobbs is perfect!"
