Laramie Flood impacts work on Steven Siegel's Sculpture

Laramie was deluged with nearly 2 inches of rain in 2 days this week resulting in elevated water levels for the Laramie River. Areas southwest of the city are particularly vulnerable, including the site for New York artist Steven Siegel's site-specific installation. While rain didn't slow the artist's progress on the sculpture, the rising water has impacted the ability to work on some sections of the inner structure. The National Weather Service expects the river to crest on Saturday morning and we hope the waters will be receding by Monday.
