STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

Two new sculptures have taken their place on Fourth Street as part of Ketchum’s 14th annual Art on Fourth program.

  • One, which resembles a tree built out of children’s wooden blocks, has replaced Rudi Broschofsky’s Ropin’ Cowboy at 4th and Main streets.

    The piece, “Minced Oaths,” is an upcycled sculpture by Portland’s Anthony Heinz May.

    Stephen Landis has created sculptures inspired by Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam,” Donald Duck and more.
     

    “My public sculptures present nature in gridded and rearranged forms as a visual interpretation of how nature is inundated by human interaction,” said May. “I upcycle dead or dying trees felled by storms or human stewardship and reconstruct their form as caught in technological interruption.”

  • “Snowy Owl,” situated on the Atkinsons’ Market side of Ketchum Town Square, is a ceramic clay piece by Loveland, Colo., artist Stephen Landis.

Landis works in bronze, plaster, wood and concrete, as well. He says he chose ceramic clay for this particular piece as it supports the movements and fluctuations of his creative process.

The sculptures were curated by the Ketchum Arts Commission, which was created in 2007. Artists are given an honorarium of $2,500. The sculptures will be on view through fall.

The Ketchum Arts Commission has also curated the art on manhole covers that depicts miners, Basque sheepherders, a train and more, and Cover Art, the wrapping of utility boxes and three ski gondola cars at Sun Valley Resort.

A printable and live walking map of Art on Fourth, Art in City Hall and the Ketchum Arts Commission’s other projects will be available mid-summer at www.ketchumidaho.org/bc-kac.
