Sisseton’s growing collection of beautiful public art has a new addition: the eight-point star called Reflections that was recently installed at the Midway Green Space, located at the south end of Veterans Avenue, across Highway 10.

The sculpture, designed by local artist Nicholas Blaske, is an eight-pointed star, a pervasive symbol of cultural and artistic expression in both the Dakota and Scandinavian cultures. The symbol has found its way into several local, public art projects Nicholas has been involved with, promoting the theme of “togetherness.” For more of this story and many more please purchase a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now or purchase a copy of the e-edtion from this website.
