Yard Art Sea Monster

The yard art Sea Monster remains, while others have changed. The artist has added several sculptures, including some across the street. If you go on a weekend there is parking at the end of the block in the probation office parking lot. You can also see one of the sculptures near the town sign, just a few blocks away near the highway on and off ramps.

Yard Art: Nessy vs. Minions

The residential yard is full of metal art. There is a full-body Loch Ness monster, plus buffalo and Minions. Really beautifully done.

[The Dunlaps, 03/17/2018]

The sculptures seem to change frequently, perhaps as the artist-owner sells them. The big Nessy is probably permanent.
