SHERIDAN — The sculpture “The Wild and the Woolly,” part of the Public Sculpture On-Loan Program, has received a $250 award from the Sheridan Public Arts Committee for favorite sculpture of 2013.
The sculpture, by Glendale, Ariz., artist Curt Mattson, features an early rodeo woman named Lulu Parr who was one of the pioneer women in rodeo. Parr was known for riding buffalo in early rodeos. No photos of Parr riding buffalo exist and the artist had to rely on one poster of Parr on a buffalo to create the piece.
“The Wild and the Woolly” can be seen on Main St. in front of First Interstate Bank and will be on display through May 2014.
The sculpture is available for sale for $13,000. Interested buyers should contact Beth Holsinger at the Downtown Sheridan Association at 672-8881.
