Two artworks were selected for the sculpture pads at the Snowy Range viaduct. The sculptures will be installed for three years, with an install date of early spring 2021.
This installation marks the first rotation of the Snowy Range Rotating Sculpture Program established by the City of Laramie and administered by the Laramie Public Art Coalition (LPAC).
Artist Sarah Deppe (https://www.sarahdeppe.com/) [MFA ’16] of Madison, Wisconsin will install “Exhaling Dissolution” on the west side pad at Clark Street and Snowy Range Road. The sculpture is a 13.5 foot tall human head fabricated from cottonwood bark.
Her work is an investigation of the constantly changing urban landscape. She is interested in how objects and materials within our urban space shift and warp our interaction with the natural world.
Deppe earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Northern Iowa, and her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
