"Story Hour"
by Sondra Jonson of Cambridge, Nebraska.

River City Sculptures on Parade, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization with a mission to bring a significant display of public art to Mason City. The program operates in partnership with SculptureOne Partner Network which also has similar programs in Mankato, Minnesota; Eau Claire, Wisconsin and Webster City, Iowa. Permanent and rotating sculptures are displayed along a 1.9 mile self-guided walking tour. Rotating sculptures are owned by the artists and loaned to the exhibit for one year. The public is invited and encouraged to vote for their favorite sculpture between June 1 and September 1.
The sculpture that receives the most votes is honored with the “People’s Choice Award,” and is purchased by the City of Mason City to become a permanent part of the collection.
