A Man and his Sculpture
What a beautiful day for cycling the Trail it was! And what a difference in the weather between today and 2 days ago. Of course, I realize winter may return again. It is Indiana, and there is climate change happening.
Today I saw some folks working on a new sculpture at the Old Washington Street Bridge in White River State Park. I took a photo of it. Then, I noticed a woman waving me to come over. Her name is Bonnie, and she told me that one of the men working on the sculpture was the artist himself. I walked over and introduced myself and asked him if I could take a photo of him with his sculpture. He replied, "Yes!" I asked Bonnie, who turned out to be a friend of his, to pose for the second photo. You can see more of Dale's work here.
The name of the sculpture is Counterpoint, and the sculptor is Dale Enochs. He also created the Time Flow sculpture on the west side of the State Capitol Building. I recognized the pattern in Counterpoint, which is similar to the two sculptures at 12th and Central Avenue. One was hit by a speeding car flying down Central several months ago. Dale says he is going to restore that sculpture with the help of the Old Northside Neighborhood Association.
