Arts R Alive will host a gathering for the public at Brewer Creek Shelter on Sunday, Nov.14, from 1 to 3 p.m. One purpose of the occasion is to show the location and a provisional draft of the proposed sculpture that will honor the late Kent Harfst.
Harfst was head of Webster City’s parks and recreation initiatives when he died in a bicycle accident in western Iowa in 2019. Because so many of his initiatives came to life in the walking/biking trails in and about the city, Arts R Alive chose to locate the remembrance so that it overlooks an important community bike path.
It also overlooks the community’s historic sledding hill.
Tim Adams, of Webster City, the artist creating the sculpture, will be on hand to answer questions regarding the Harfst sculpture.
In addition, Arts R Alive will talk about its proposed plan for sidewalks and sculpture locations in West Twin Park.
There will be hot cider, wine and cheese.
Live music will be provided by Jace and Tyler Abens. The Kent Harfst remembrance fund is at $9,000, according to Arts R Alive. There’s still time to help reach the $12,000 goal.
