Sculpture installed in Heart of Cedar Springs


n-sculpture

A unique metal sculpture, made by artist Steve Anderson, of Anderson’s Metal Sculpture, was installed last week on the property behind where the new library is being built, at the corner of Main and W. Maple Street.

“This sculpture, donated by the Community Building Development Team, will add the cultural touch that enhances the educational nature of all the projects planned for this ten-acre site,” said Library Director Donna Clark. “It will add culture and beauty within the areas of the rain gardens and near the planned library building.”

The sculpture is a stainless steel, artistic representation of cattails among dragonflies. It will provide a point of special interest for children and adults alike, and will enhance the area that is home to the historic, Cedar Springs natural flowing spring.

Anderson is the same artist that also created the metal hawk sculptures at Cedar Springs High School and the athletic stadium.

If you’ve driven down Main Street recently, you can’t help but notice that the walls are up on the new Cedar Springs Public Library at the corner of Main and Maple Streets. It’s coming along quickly! Also installed on Thursday was a new metal dragonfly sculpture in the area near the flowing well (behind the library), which will be part of the new rain garden area. Watch next week’s paper for more on that piece, created by local artist Steve Anderson.
