New sculptures revealed Friday


August 15, 2019

Two new sculptures will be unveiled during the River Festival and Art on the Green festivities this weekend.

The Green River Arts Council will host the unveiling at 7 p.m. Friday at Expedition Island. One sculpture is of a fox while the other is a stainless steel trout measuring more than 30 feet in length. The sculpture reveal coincides with the 15th anniversary of Art on the Green.

According to Tricia Patterson, a member of the arts council, the trout was created by Green River artist Bobby Patterson. It consists of three 10-foot by 4-foot segments that were hand drawn and cut from stainless steel. The fish will be installed along the Greenbelt walking path and backlit, which was funded by the Green River Arts Council and the Art on the Green Program. Patterson said the fox was sculpted by Jacob Novinger of Idaho. Composed of found metal items, it measures 50 inches in height, 15-inches long and 12-inches wide. The sculpture was purchased by the Kourbelas Foundation.

Other Art on the Green events include a live competition starting at 11 a.m., Friday, the Battle on the Green from 4:30-6:30 p.m., Friday and Kids Creation Corner from 5-7 p.m., Friday. Saturday events can be found on page A13.

River Festival will also feature a visit by U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.). The event’s shrimp boil is one of Barrasso’s favorite events in Wyoming and has attended the dinner every year since being appointed to replace Sen. Craig Thomas after his death in 2007. Barrasso is expected to arrive at Expedition Island 5:30 p.m. Friday.
