Eagles of Libby

The Eagles of Libby are iron and steel eagle sculptures of various sizes ranging from a 6 ft. wing span to several over 25 ft. wing tip to wing tip. A while back the local [art] teacher started making these beautiful sculptures. The town purchased them and began displaying them all over town. It didn't hurt that the mayor at the time was the teacher's brother.

Shortly after the sculptures began, Libby became "The City of Eagles."

[Chuck Pitman, 02/14/2010]

July 2010: Donna Berget corrects Chuck Pitman's tip: "The city of Libby (and that includes the mayor) has never given Todd any money for his eagles. The two big eagles were purchased with highway grant money and the one in the picture by Chuck Pitman was done through fund-raising and private donations to the project. All other eagles seen in and around our community were purchased by the individuals or local businesses where they are located. Also, the eagles range in size from 6 ft. to just over 40 ft. wing tip to wing tip."
