Happy holidays from The Sculpture Project!

December 18, 2014
by Anna Huntington, The Sculpture Project/Arts Rapid City

We caught up with Yuki during a long-awaited downpour in draught-stricken California last week to find out what he's up to for the holidays.
Yuki the Buddhist reported: "We don't celebrate this holiday so big." Mini-Christmas tree, small present exchange, fish for dinner.
Yuki plans to travel to Japan early in the New Year. He'll visit with friends and family and connect with his old friend, Tadao Arimoto, the Pittsburgh-based wood artist who held workshops in Rapid City this summer and will be traveling to Japan at the same time.
In preparation for carving at Main Street Square next summer, Yuki said he's working on fitting his design to the granite forms and reading an autobiography by Luther Standing Bear.
All of us at The Sculpture Project wish you very happy holidays and all the best for 2015!

Find more On the Blog, including the sculptor's description of his work during summer 2014.

Christine Stewart shared a first draft of Part One of Passage of Wind and Water: A Choral Poem.

Christine writes that this draft is, "Inspired by the work of Mrs. Garrett's sixth-graders (Southwest Middle School) as well as several of the adult participants who have sent me lines, poems, and bits of prose. I have drafted the "wind" section of the choral poem. Several parts seem to be shaping up: stars, water, wind, stone, prairie.
