Artist working on McEuen Sculptures-Historical Trail

The Democratic Club is pleased to welcome local artist Terry Lee, along with Blair Williams of the Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission this Friday July 20th @ Noon, The Iron Horse downtown CDA. Terry has been working on a series of sculptures, creating a “Historical Trail” along 6th & Front Avenue, McEuen Park. “The Working Man”, a bronze sculpture dedicated to the carpenter, was acquired in 2014 by the CDA Arts Commission as a donation from Dean Haagenson, President of Contractors Northwest. Contractors Northwest was the company selected to construct McEuen Park. “The Idaho Farmer” was commissioned by The Jacklin Family and donated to the City of Coeur d’Alene “in recognition of the Idaho Farmers who produce seeds, food and fodder from the prairies, meadows and gentle slopes of North Idaho.” Terry is currently working on the “Idaho Lumberjack”, and plans to bring a cast miniature to the talk on Friday. Terry also has plans in the works for “The Miner”.

There are two proposed options for historical female sculptures;
WWII Navy Nurse (Farragut base) -or- Celebrating Idaho’s Women’s Suffrage
Women’s suffrage is the right of women to vote and run for office. Today, Americans take it for granted that every upstanding citizen can participate in our elections. However, it was only one hundred years ago, that women were finally recognized as equals to men and given equivalent voting rights in Idaho.

The Coeur d’Alene City Council charged the Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission to stimulate and encourage the study and presentation of the performing and fine arts. Furthermore, this initiative includes the promotion of the arts throughout the city and surrounding area. In addition, it works to raise public interest and participation in artistic endeavors. The commission’s vision is to build an exceptional collection of public art in our community. Not only does this public art define the community and distinguish it from others, it also serves to complement Coeur d’Alene’s many natural attributes.

The Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission oversees the public arts program. In addition, it develops policies and goals for the selection, placement and maintenance of works of art. It also manages the integration of a wide range of public art. These installations reflect a diversity of communities, artistic disciplines, and points of view. The commission is also responsible for curating memorials for public parks and donations of artwork to the public collection.
