Main street square artist gets design input from locals

Posted:

This summer, an internationally renowned sculptor will put his touch on Rapid City's main street square, but right now, he's looking for your input.

Japanese sculpture Masayuki Nagase is the artist chosen to carve 21 pieces of granite in Main Street Square.

The artist held a community workshop Friday, to brainstorm ideas and get input from locals.

Nagase says his work is heavily influenced by nature, and he wants to learn what nature means to the people who live in this area.

The $2 million dollar project is currently in the conceptual design phase.

"I'm going to go back to California and study information and get final design and get back this summer," said Nagase.

The Main Street Square project, titled 'The Passage of Wind and Water' is the largest privately funded public art project underway in the United States.
