"Flower Dancing in the Wind", a sculpture by Jerry McKellar, is shared by way of the Chelan Art Council Outdoor Gallery. The bronze statue stands on the northwest corner at the three-way intersection of West Webster Avenue and West Woodin Avenue (where they then both double as US Highway 97A) in Gateway Park in Chelan, in front of 601 W Woodin Ave, Washington 98816 USA. Additional major supporters were City of Chelan, Community Foundation of North Central Washington, Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, Lake Chelan Tourism Promotion Group, Tom and Mary Ann Warren, Chelan Rotary, and Karma Vineyard. ~information paraphrased from the nearby plaque. Where did the sculptor come up with the name for this piece? The inspiration for this bronze came while Jerry was reading a book, Dancing Colors: Paths of Native American Women, when he read the following; "It was in the springtime that my grandmother gave me her name, Flower Dancing in the Wind. I will be known by her name after she is gone. She also gave me her beaded moccasins." Jerry McKellar's works reside in collections throughout the United States of America, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. You may see his profile and more on his website. ~paraphrased from: http://www.jerrymckellar.com "It is not enough to say this sculpture exudes feelings of lightness and happiness in a captured NOW moment. Yet, that will suffice for now" ;)n one of my pano-sphere photos, but in this case, I'd rather add a quote [below] which someone stated about Jerry McKellar's artworks." ~T.W.OldField "Your detail is so fine -- It gives me great pride to be part of the culture. Through you, our spirit lives." -- Terry Eaglefeather, Chippewa/Cree
