Two sculptures are in place on Fourth Street as part of the city’s 14th annual Art on Fourth program.

According to an announcement from the city, artists were selected in a juried process by the Ketchum Arts Commission. They receive an honorarium of $2,500.

A natural piece, Minced Oaths, by Portland’s Anthony Heinz May, has been installed on the corner of Fourth and Main streets.

“My public sculptures present nature in gridded and rearranged forms as a visual interpretation of how nature is inundated by human interaction,” May said. “I upcycle dead/dying trees felled by storms or human stewardship and reconstruct their form as caught in technological interruption.”

Snowy Owl, a ceramic clay piece by Loveland, Colo., artist Stephen Landis, has been placed in Town Square. Though he works in several media, such as bronze, plaster, wood and concrete, he chose ceramic clay for this piece as it perfectly supports the movements and fluctuations of his creative process, the release stated.

“The Arts Commission has found incredibly talented artists for this year’s exhibition,” Mayor Neil Bradshaw said. “I am happy to see people out and about and able to enjoy Art on Fourth.”

A printable and live walking map with more detailed information on Art on Fourth, Art in City Hall and the Arts Commission’s other projects will be available mid-summer online at

The sculptures will be on view through fall.
