Some of youÂ may have noticed a new sculpture at the Somersett East Park, and if you haven't you should!Â Â This Golden EagleÂ sculpture is a beautiful addition to the park and is 25 feet tall and is constructed from both new and recycled materials.Â The artist, Bryan Tedrik holds a BFA in sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute. His artwork is featured in many public and private art collections. â€œThe process of creating the piece was entirely spontaneous and a result of harmonious balance, both physically and visually. The most challenging part was creating the tail. It was worked and reworked until the balance was perfectly centered over the bearing,â€ said Tedrick.Â Â Somersett residents can often see a pair of Golden Eagles soaring over the community and couldn't wait to see the artist's interpretation.
On Wednesday, JuneÂ 2, at 10:00 a.m.,Â the Reno Mayor, Bob Cashell and Councilmembers, Dave Aiazzi and Jessica Sferraza will be at the Somersett park to dedicate our new sculpture.Â Everyone is invited to attend.Â For more information contact Christine Fey, Arts and Culture Manager at 775-334-2417.Â
