 KDWA Radio Interviews Dale and Mecca

The intersection of Hwy 42 and Lock Blvd in Hastings has organically evolved into a sculpture park. The owners of the property, Harry and Patty Benjamin have graciously allowed Dale to display his sculptures there for nearly 10 years. 

In a recent interview with Maureen McNearly at KDWA Radio, they asked the community to give their thoughts and ideas for a name for the sculpture park.

 Happy New Year!

Wooly Bully
At 13 feet long and over 9 feet tall, Wooly Bully weighs nearly 1300 pounds
(over 600 pounds of tie wire for his hair).
He took nearly 6 months to build.
I named him Wooly Bully
because the whole time I was building
him, that song "Wooly Bully" kept going through my head!

Big Bird

The extinct Elephant Bird of Madagascar inspired "Big Bird." At 9.5' tall and 6.5' long, it represents the largest land bird ever known. 

I was recently interviewed at KDWA Radio. To listen to the Big Bird interview, click on the button below.
