‘Explorer’ Artwork To Grace McEuen

'The Explorer' will be unveiled, along with two other pieces of public art, at McEuen Field May 22.

The City Council this week voted unanimously that a bronze sculpture entitled "The Explorer" is a good fit for McEuen Park.The artwork depicts two boys and a girl hiking over a log. Initially, the piece included three boys, but the city’s Arts Commission asked the artist to include a girl in the mix and the sculpture was revised. Council members said the artwork conveys nature, adventure and the outdoors—all of which they deemed as important themes for the park. “The Explorer” will be placed along the Centennial Trail confluence near the base of Tubbs Hill at the southwest end of the park. Coeur d’Alene Recreation Director Steve Anthony said all three approved pieces of public art will be placed by May 22/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today. More here.
