Don Rambadt and the National Sculptors' Guild are in Wyoming this week installing Pinedale's new public art gateway pieces. Rambadt's design incorporates stylized depictions of wildlife from the region welcoming visitors at each end of Pinedale on Highway 191. The West has Trout on a swoosh of water, the East has soaring Eagles.
The base of each includes the words "PINEDALE ALL THE CIVILIZATION YOU NEED" cutout from the metal. Fabricated from Stainless Steel and Cor-ten Steel with River rock bases. The A-frame steel structure of the sculptures are lit at night, fueled by an incorporated solar panel.
The project is funded through the Wyoming Office of Tourism's sign grant program and Wyoming Main Street.
