Bemidji Sculpture walk: Voting on sculpture subject slated to end this weekend

Those interested in helping to choose the subject for miniature sculptures to be placed throughout the city of Bemidji need to vote by Saturday, Feb. 6.

More than 260 votes have been cast in the last few weeks in a poll on the Web site, and organizers of the Bemidji Sculpture Walk say they will tally the results after Saturday.

To vote in the poll, go online to the and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the home screen.

The Bemidji Sculpture Walk has received a grant from the George W. Neilson Foundation that will cover the cost of manufacturing about 10 miniature sculptures, which would be about 2 feet high.

But the board does not want to choose the subject of the sculptures without input from area residents.

The choices for the sculpture subjects include a turtle, fish, beaver, frog, canoe, small Paul Bunyan, or "other." (The board requests that residents specify their "other" preferences.)
