LOG grateful for all the support
On Saturday, Sept. 11, the Longview Outdoor Gallery installed eight new sculptures in downtown Longview, moved one, and removed two. It was a huge undertaking, but thanks to the following people, it went very smoothly and the sculptures are now available for all to enjoy.
Thanks to Jennifer Wills of Longview Parks and Recreation for her help in making arrangements with the city and for the help of Joanna, Jim, and Izzy; and to Ken Hash of Longview Public Works for support and installation help by Aaron Kyllo and Tanner Vossen.
All of the Longview Outdoor Gallery board members were involved in traffic control and hosting the artists: Lauren Murphy, Hans Schaufus, Deb Andersen, Mary Jane Melink, Pat Reistroffer, Karen Pickett and Jeanene LeRae. Board member David Pittsley and the Lower Columbia College welding department deserve special thanks for welding all the sculptures in place.
We especially thank other volunteers who helped: Mike Woods, Bob Reistroffer, John Melink, Rosemary Powelson, Michael Dixon, Tanya Pittsley, and The Broadway Gallery for providing the installation headquarters.
The artists not only provided their sculptures, but helped with other sculptors’ installations: Kris Vermeer, Lloyd Whannell, Wayne Chabre, Mike Theisen, Leon White, Jesse Swickard, Jud Turner, Ben Dye and John Zylstra.
In all, more than 30 people participated to cause the installation to go as smoothly as possible and to help make Longview a more beautiful community.
