Photos: Town of Snowmass installs 5,000-pound steel sculpture at roundabout

Staff report

The town of Snowmass on Tuesday morning installed the 5,000-pound sculpture at the roundabout intersection of Brush Creek and Wood roads. Part-time Snowmass resident Heinz Simon donated the public art, which stirred talk and criticism from some community members in the spring. The Snowmass Town Council voted in late April to accept the roundabout sculpture that Simon first offered the town in the fall. The sculpture, made from stainless steel and creek rock, is 22 feet, 6 inches tall. While the donor is commissioning the sculpture, the town is responsible for its $12,000 installation costs. South Dakota-based artist Dale Lamphere, who created the piece, was on site Tuesday. Photos by Anna Stonehouse/Snowmass Sun.
