Fisher of Clams Statue
Muscatine, Iowa has a new statue on its Mississippi waterfront -- a large sculpture of a clam fisherman standing in a clam-filled boat and brandishing a pair of clamming forks over his head. "Mississippi Harvest," a bronze created by artist Erik Blome, is over 23 feet tall. It's one of several "Pearl of the Mississippi" projects to beautify the riverfront.
Muscatine is the location of the Pearl Button Museum.[Roadsideamerica.com Team, 07/01/2006]
