Main Street Square sculpture sketches revealed

Posted:

The artist chosen for the granite carvings in Main Street Square has released preliminary designs for his artwork.
 
Artist Masayuki Nagase said in a press release Friday, he chose the two natural elements of wind and water as his major visual themes.

Stating that, as in nature, wind and water are ever, present and interacting with 'all' life.

Nagase recently met with more than 600 local people at workshops to get their input on what they want to see.

So far it seems everyone is on board.
 
 
"I think it's fantastic it's really great, bringing all this art to downtown, along with all the new art galleries opening up, it'll just be fantastic. I really like that he incorporated the Black Hills into his designs, with the fossils and the water and the natural scenery, I think he has a really good design," says Jonah and Sara Hendrickson of Rapid City.

The two million dollars funding the project makes this the largest privately funded art project underway in the entire U.S.
