Bemidji Sculpture Walk

First beavers, then dragonflies, now dogs.   The Bemidji Sculpture Walk has added 3 dimensional intrigue to downtown Bemidji since 1999.   In 2010, the Bemidji Sculpture Walk started the first of its painted form fundraisiers.  That year, ten beaver sculptures were painted by area artists, placed in downtown Bemidji for a year, then autioned off with proceeds going toward the Sculpture Walk.  Four years later, The forms were dragonflies.  Tonight, 12 unique dog sculpures will be auction off at the Watermark Art Center.  Bemidji Sculpure Walk board member Cal Rice stopped by the morning show yesterday to tell us about how this year's sculpture auction is different than those in the past.
