The second piece of artwork planned for McEuen Park was placed at its new perch on Wednesday overlooking Lake Coeur d’Alene near the Third Street Boat Launch. “The Great Escape Blue Heron” is a bronze piece situated on a large slab of granite. The $10,500 Heron art was donated by Dr. Justin Stormogipson of Coeur d’Alene in memory of his late wife Maj Stormogipson. The popular artwork won the 2013 People’s Choice Award for best temporary art and was previously situated at the corner of Lakeside Avenue at Second Street. Artist Jerold Sheraton of Sheraton, Wyoming created The Great Escape Blue Heron/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today. More here.
