Swan finds home, and Meg's Terre Haute Dedication

Tuesday, we delivered my Brazilian Marble Swan to the Home of Tom and Trish Henrion.

Something old - something new. Behind their home, there is an eclectic collection of contemporary art in the sculpture garden that is in front of a log cabin that dates back to 1830.

Inside the log cabin, are great examples of well-crafted furnishings, including two Walnut tables made by Tom Henrion, himself, from wood that came off his property.

The spiral staircase is too cool!

This is Tom. He's showing us a bench, on the back porch, that he made from rustic pieces of wood that he gathered near his creek.

The Swan is temporarily residing on a patio table. After a base is procured, it will take its place in the sculpture garden.

Thursday, we made the four hour drive to Terre haute for Meg's sculpture dedication at the Hux Cancer Center.

Meg gave her speech, along with several other dignitaries.

The sculpture was unveiled.

At the end of the night we enjoyed some "Spoils of War" (monogramed cupcakes) in the complimentary hotel room provided by Artspaces, the directing agency for the project. We had an excellent dinner with a great group of people at an Indian restaurant after the unveiling. Terre Haute has good memories for us.

Before we left town the next morning, we checked out the new Max Erhmann sculpture. This is one of the several bronze plaques, set into the brick pavers, that commemorate some of the poet's words.
