East Roundabout Sculpture Installed Alan and Nicole Milligan (at left) assisted city employees and volunteers with the installation of Alan’s sculpture “Cloud Horse” in the east roundabout on Highway 10 on Thursday, July 2. Others assisting with the installation were (front row, left to right) Marvin Weyand, John Rasmussen, (back row) Michael Schneider, Neal Nelson and Terry Jaspers. The sculpture features three horse-shaped clouds running free across the Coteau hills but doesn’t impede the vision of drivers circling the roundabout. A different sculpture will be installed on the west roundabout by early fall. The Sisseton Arts Council is also working on securing a third location for the installation of other pieces of public art by local artists. ~ Courier Photo

A unique sculpture has been installed on the east roundabout on Highway 10 in Sisseton. A metal sculpture called “Cloud Horse” was designed by Minnesota artist Alan Milligan and was installed on July 2. The design features a group of low-bearing clouds shaped as a family of horses running fast and wild across the Coteau hills. The structure is built with a stainless-steel framework. The horse heads and other details are crafted from bronze which was annealed by hand and patinated in multiple shades of blue, creating the effect that “Cloud Horse” is made from the sky. The ground below “Cloud Horse” is scheduled to be dormant seeded this fall into prairie grasses and wild flowers native to the Coteau des Prairies.
