Moorhead Public Service unveiled the city’s newest work of
public art Wednesday — a 155-foot design encircling the Woodlawn
Park water tower, which has been completely renovated
this summer. It features an original design in sky blue, navy and
green created by artists Stephen Dorsey and Jack Lunde that
was inspired by the Woodlawn neighborhood that surrounds
the site on Fourth Avenue South. Among its motifs are a bicyclist
and canoeist, the log cabin that formerly stood in the
park, the Hjemkomst Center, Veterans Memorial Bridge, a locomotive,
eagles and a catfish. Moorhead Public Service and the
City Council funded the project — the second water tower to
be embellished with public art. The first is located in Oakport.
The artists were selected in a competition coordinated by Su
Legatt as part of the full exterior and interior renovation of the
500,000-gallon tower built in 1995. (Photo/Russ Hanson)
