Concurrent with a ribbon-cutting on the Myrtle Street bike/pedestrian pathway project in Hailey on Tuesday was an unveiling of a new piece of art commissioned by the Hailey Arts and Historic Preservation Commission. The colorful sheep sculpture honors the historical sheep migration route along Myrtle Street that is still used today by sheepherders to trail their sheep through the town each fall and spring. Artist Jacob Novinger of Gooding, Idaho, was commissioned to do the sculpture. Novinger incorporated colorful found objects, including auto and tractor body parts and tools into his piece. “This sculpture is striking, whimsical and a perfect blend of art and history for our community,” Arts and Historic Preservation Commission Chairman Daniel Hansen said.
