When I purchased a lot in Springville in 1996 one of the attractions of this city was its strong sense of community which I had observed in visits here to enjoy the Art Museum, Art City Days and the annual folk dance festival. Since moving here I have come more fully to appreciate its focus on the arts.
Last year I happened across this map showing the many statues of Springville. Since then I have been hoping to visit and photograph each of the statues. I finally did it this week, on my bike, with this map, on four different rides (three evenings and one morning) that took me from my home in north Springville west to Westside Elementary, East to Hobble Creek Golf Course and south to Evergreen cemetery and private home.
Do fiberglass or plastic statues count?
At least 86 statues--pretty impressive for a small Utah town. If you have more info on the names of any unidentified sculptors or unnamed statues please let me know (email@example.com)
On 400 North between 400 and 5000 East.
While riding around this lovely town I thought a nice addition to our many beautiful sculptures would be to place sculptures in front of some (or all) of the churches. Congregations could seek donations and then commission local artists to sculpt something biblical or inspirational. The LDS Chapel on Main has a central location and plenty of lawn to house a sculpture. Maybe it should be the first project.
I'm willing to chair a committee to raise funds and place a sculpture in front of the Pavilion Chapel.
