Lander artist Sandy Scott’s latest project weighs in at 2,600 lbs.
A massive bronze piece called “Rite of Passage” features two life-sized horses.
Scott has been collaborating with Eagle Bronze Foundry in Lander to create the work of art. Her finished project was loaded onto a large trailer Thursday morning and is now en route to Neenah, Wisconsin.
Eagle Bronze tells us that the city of Neenah will feature it as a public installation and it will be placed in a roundabout, becoming a focal-point for community members.
Scott is originally from Dubuque, Iowa, and attended the Kansas City Art Institute. She has been sculpting professionally since the 1970’s and has also been a licensed pilot for nearly 50 years. She regularly works with Eagle Bronze.
Hundreds of pieces of art have been created from Lander’s Eagle Bronze Foundry, including the legendary bull sculpture on Wall Street in New York City, a heard of cattle in Dallas’ Pioneer Plaza, and even microphone-shaped trophies handed out at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry.
