Just in the nick of time for the holidays, Edina Sculptures is now available at the Edina Art Center.
"I'm proud to showcase Edina's public art at its best," said photographer and author Barbara La Valleur. This is her 14th photo book.
Highlighted are this years' new sculptures plus an historical record of all sculptures ever exhibited on The Promenade, Grandview Square and this year's 50th and France. La Valleur also included a page at the back showing artists installing their sculptures as well as other informal photos of staff and Edina Public Art Committee members.
The front cover features this year's People's Choice First Place winner, Oxymoron by Bruce Stillman. The back cover is a stunning photo of The Pinecone during December foggy morning. The sculpture by Marcia McEachron was generously commissioned by John and Jean Hedberg.
The book is $49 plus tax, with net proceeds going to EPAC. EAC is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. today and on Monday, Dec. 24. For additional hours and directions, see the EAC web site.
La Valleur's first book highlighting Edina public sculptures is part of the Edina Historical Society collection.
