Maker of Fort Dodge sculpture to give presentation tonight

Dan Perry, the artist who is making a sculpture for downtown Fort Dodge, will give a presentation this evening about the role of public art in communities, its impact and how it defines a place.

The presentation will be from 6 to 7 p.m. in room 201 at Citizens Central, 617 Central Ave.

As a practicing artist, he will provide insight into the processes of designing and fabricating permanent sculptures as well as how artists work with communities to create a cultural landscape that contributes to their identity.

He also will discuss the process of planning, seeking and implementing art into a variety of public spaces.

Perry is currently fabricating “Chronicle,” a large-scale permanent sculpture marking the sesquicentennial of the Fort Dodge city charter. The finished artwork will be placed in the 900 block of First Avenue South this fall.
