Sculpture Hike

July 3, 2009

Twelve people gathered at the Eugene Public Library for the Sculpture walk. The good news was that there was free parking since the City of Eugene had an official holiday. The bad news was that it was 90 plus degrees. Eugene Skinner, Rosa Parks, Ken Kesey, Wayne Morse, Small Girl Waiting for Train and the Bronze Geologic Features (fossils) in the Riverplay Discovery Village were the highlights. We found the chess piece sculpted into the bottom of one of Kesey’s grandchild’s right shoe. The Marker of Origin at the Amtrak train station created a lively discussion about the origin of departure or the origin of the city. Most of us ended up at the Fifth Street Market for lunch. If anyone would like a copy of the handout with details about the sculptures, contact me at

Hikers were Rick Ahrens, Tashi Choden, Jane Hackett, Jim Pierce, Dave Predeek, Margaret Prentice, Bonnie Richman, Joanne Gulsvig, Sharon Luchs, Dana Magliary, Dorothy Quirk and Janet Jacobsen, leader.
