Professional Minneapolis-based sculptor Cary Netherton recently returned home for more than just to reminisce over his roots–he practically came back to install one.

After first returning back in August with half of a sculpture he’d agreed to donate, the Sullivan native came back once again in October with the remaining segments and began installing it on October 22.

After a few days of rebolting and mortaring the insides, Netherton’s work of art was officially home, permanently presented on a slab of concrete near the entrance of Tabor Park.
