Mountain Humane’s New Sculpture Sings
Saturday, October 30, 2021


It looks sort of like a blue Rubik’s cube.

It is the latest art work to take its place outside Mountain Humane.

The sculpture, which sits at the northwest corner of Mountain Humane’s building out Croy Canyon, was a legacy gift from Hailey resident Jim Moore, a longtime supporter of Mountain Humane. He spoke with former Assistant Director Brooke Bonner about donating one of his outdoor sculptures, which had sat near his home on the Big Wood River, before he passed away last spring.

“The beautiful piece is called Anthum,” said Annie McCauley, Mountain Humane’s director. “Its dimensions are 82-by-72-by-96 inches, and it emits a deep, soft gong three times a day as it expands and contrasts with the morning and afternoon sun.”

The piece was rated by Joseph Kinnebrew, a local artist who is internationally known. Kinnebrew has created a large variety of sculptures, including metal elk, stainless steel horse pipe statues and abstract sculptures.

He’s been described by some in the art world as an eccentric creative genius. New York Times critic William Zimmer called him “an 800-pound gorilla, impossible to ignore.” His work is represented in major museum collections and private collections throughout the world.

Typically, legacy gifts are planned gifts, such as cash, stock, bonds, art, property or other assets that are donated to a nonprofit upon an individual’s death, said McCauley. Designated in wills, they’re given by those who want to give to nonprofit causes that are important to them after their death.

McCauley said the gifts don’t necessarily come from major donors.
