Sunrise Spirit Column
#13 Along the Roundabout Art Route
Sunriver Spirit Column was made by David Govedare in 2001. This piece is suggestive of a totem, with contemporary pictographs including deer, a skier, and a television. In the words of the artist, whose father taught him to arc weld at ten years old, “I like to see sculpture outdoors, highlighting different places. Even places that don’t seem special, they’re made special just by having art there.” The piece is a combination of basalt, granite, steel, and copper.
