Preparations are complete for the scheduled installation of John Henry's monumental sculpture River High at the Laramie Recreation Center on Monday, August 28.

Standing 55-ft tall, the steel scultpure required a 14-ft base and will be painted on site. We have yet to know what primary color John Henry will select for the work!

Preparing the site for the scultpure has involved designing the pad to support the scale and weight of the sculpture, testing the concrete to meet specifications, and forming and pouring the pad. We would like to thank Haselden Construction and Coffey Engineering for their contribution of the pad!
