The day trip to Oregon was essentially to see the 50 foot tall statue “Eternal Indian” by Lorado Taft. Took the day trip with good friends Debra Purden and Jennifer.  The day couldn’t have been more beautiful!

The main  highlight of the trip was the Oregon Sculpture Trail.

The Community Art Legacy [CAL] was formed in 2004 by a group of Oregon citizens with the purpose of installing “ten sculptures in ten yers” in the Oregon area. It was formed under the initiative of Jeff Adams, sculptor and foundry operator of inBronze Foundry in Mt. Morris. Their guiding motivation was expressed by sculptor Lorado Taft when he said, “The hometown is the dearest place on earth. Why not make is more beautiful”.
