A life-sized sculpture of William "Bill" Clark with his duck dog is being installed in the Bill Clark Wetlands at the Clinton Presidential Park tomorrow. The Clark Wetlands will be dedicated at a ceremony at 11 a.m. Friday along with the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge (the former Rock Island Railroad Bridge).

Clay Enoch, a member of the National Sculptures Guild in Loveland, Colo., that has been the source of most of the public art in Riverfront Park, created the bronze sculpture, "Steady," which was commissioned for the park.

Clark, the founder-owner with the Dillard family of CDI Construction, builder of the Clinton Presidential Library, was a civic leader and outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing and being in nature.

According to the National Sculptors Guild, "Steady" will be produced in a limited edition.

"Available as limited editions of 25 for the maquette, and 10 for the monument, the lifesize dog will also be available without the hunter in a separate edition. Introductory prices are available for the first 3 castings or through mid October 2011*... maquette: $7,200, lifesize: $60,000, lab alone: $12,500. *Effective October 14, 2011 prices are subject to change without notice based on cost of production and/or rarity in edition. Prices do not include shipping/handling/insurance or optional installation.
