  • Maquette of "Untitled," by Clay Enoch, to be placed at Central High School in 2017.

Clay Enoch of Colorado Springs, a member of the Sculptors Guild of Loveland, Colo., won the Sculpture at the River Market's top award, an $80,000 commission to create a sculpture that will be installed on the grounds of Central High School next year, last month.

The 10-foot-tall untitled sculpture, to be made of silicon bronze, depicts two men working to connect rings. A maquette was entered in the annual show to illustrate what the completed work will look like.

The sculpture will mark the 60th anniversary of the integration of Central High.

Scott Carter, who is the city's liaison to the Arts and Culture Commission, said 28 sculptors submitted ideas for the commission, which is funded by the annual sculpture show, preview party and private donations. Enoch was one of three finalists; the others were Kathleen Caricof and Denny Haskew, who are also Colorado artists.

Enoch's other Arkansas commissions include "Steady," the memorial for William E. Clark at the Clinton Presidential Center; and "Angel," a memorial for Cindy Miller, "Water's Edge" and "Turtle Hunters," all at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
