Bridge Between Banks

Artist Ivan Iler evoked an image of the community’s earliest days with this sculpture. Made from multiple layers of corten steel, the trees and bridge shift as you move by it honoring a scene found in a photo from this same area ca. 1907. The piece sits at the corner of the pocket park on Jefferson and Bridge. Installed September 2022.

The River (Runs Through Us)

Artist Richard Tanner had fond memories as a child fishing in the village of Dimondale. For this sculpture, he drew on inspiration from the smallmouth bass he used to catch and used a combination of rocks found in the river and metal that was installed near the river in Danford Island Park.  Installed June 2022.
