Jack Pearadin and Doug Nelsen found a 1.73-carat diamond after nearly a year of searching the park's field.
City spokesperson Meg Matthews today provided this sketch by Conway sculptor Bryan Massey Sr., who won a $60,000 commission from the Sculpture at the River Market non-profit to create a sculpture for Riverfront Park. The award was announced at the conclusion of last week's Sculpture at the River Market show and sale in the River Market pavilions.
Massey, who teaches at the University of Central Arkansas and whose Fayetteville sculpture honoring Silas Hunt was noted in Eye Candy recently, calls the soapstone, limestone and steel sculpture "Nautilus."
Thank you so much, Leslie, and the Arkansas Times for your support of the arts…
