The sculpture trail continues

Fountain was in full force on Saturday with attendance high at the Heritage Park Sculpture Trail dedication.

Fountain 33

The first sculpture was installed in 2001 at Waterfront Park. Those first sculptures are widely viewed as the trailhead for the Mason County Sculpture Trail which has grown to Rotary Park, the Library and now into Fountain. A New Era artist, Rubin Llano, made the “Out of the Woods” sculpture using modelling stone to create the impressive work horses and log.

During the invocation, Bill Anderson spoke about the public response to the statue, “I am so impressed with the deep attachment that the local people in Fountain have felt for this project and what they have contributed.”
