Porter Sculpture Park outside Montrose, S.D., puts one man’s fertile imagination on display.
By DIRK LAMMERS The Associated Press

MONTROSE, S.D. | Cartoonlike buzzards wielding a knife and fork, anvil and oversized mallet might seem like an odd way to welcome tourists, but Porter Sculpture Park is no typical roadside attraction.

The vultures representing reincarnated politicians are just a few of the more than 40 quirky creations originating in the mind of Wayne Porter, who uses his blacksmith know-how and appreciation of history to turn twisted concepts into metallic works of art.  (Cont’d.)

Liberty Arts Squared-2012 updates website

The Liberty Arts Squared Preview Show will be at Belvoir Winery on March 22nd.  Like last year, many of our Arts Squared artists and winners will be displaying their work, Belvoir will have wine samplings, there will be musical performances and appetizers will be served by many of our local restaurants.  We will also have a silent auction, as we had last year.

This year, the Liberty Arts Squared festival promises to bigger and better than last year.  We are expanding it to two days, June 1-2.  The entire downtown square will be blocked on Friday night, June 1, and The JEM will be providing wine and beer for festival patrons to enjoy throughout the entire downtown square as they enjoy the art and performances.  Also on Friday night, the Wild Women of Kansas City will be performing among other groups.  On Saturday, the emphasis will be more on family activities.

Some of the ways you can support Liberty Arts Squared include donating item(s) for the silent auction at the Preview Show as well as attending the Preview Show or by being an Arts Squared sponsor.  Details about both are in the attached letters.  All proceeds from the silent action benefit Liberty Arts Squared and enable us to attract quality artists, provide prizes and enhance our marketing to draw more people to the festival and to the historic downtown area.
