While walking her dog, sculptor Jennifer Meyer (right) of Lansing found her inspiration in the trash she spotted along the route. Various bits of metal and plastic were transformed by her artistic mind to create “The Big Face,” which she installed at RB&W District Park along the Rock Falls riverfront at 301 E. Second St. The large face is part of the annual Art in the Park Sculpture Walk. Ten sculptures will be displayed year-round for visitors to view. The park was also the place to be Saturday for a wide variety of artistic mediums – watercolors, oil on canvas, photography and more. Aspiring artist Elizabeth Lindquist, 16, of Sterling, was working on a canvas painting of the First Avenue bridge. Lindquist also was selling her completed work to help pay for a school theater trip to New York City next summer. The family-friendly
event also offered music,
food, beer and wine.
