John Henry's River High, the massive, red sculpture at the Laramie Recreation Center, has been sold and will be removed from the exhibition Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational in September. Plans are to de-install the work on Thursday, September 16. If you haven't seen the work, now is the time to do so and if you have, now is the time to visit again!
This will be the fifth work to disappear from the original exhibition. Previous works in Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational that have been removed are Deborah Butterfield, Billings; Steven Siegel, It Goes Under; James Surls, In Circle; and Charmaine Locke, Open Book. Last year, Charles Long's Untitled work was added. In the coming year, several new works are being planned to add to the exhibition.
