New Statue Unveiled

Posted: Updated:

     The artist who worked on the Selena statue along the Bayfront has done it again.

     Today, crews used a crane to move this huge statue into place at Oleander Park. 

     The eye catching art piece is called the "Wind Dancer." 

     Its the work of artist Buddy Tatum. 

     He says "Windy" faces due South, and stands at least 16 feet tall, weighs a whopping 15 hundred pounds, and also acts as a compass of sorts for sailors.

     The Dusty Durrill family donated the statue to the city.
