This Thursday, the folks behind Saxony, the latest let’s-make-a-town-from-scratch in Hamilton County, will be dedicating a new sculpture by Bloomington artist Dale Enochs. The piece will be a prominent part of the 725-acre housing/office/retail community.

Not familiar with the artist? Enochs large-scale stone and bronze works prominent at White River Gardens (recall the water-covered “Mill Stone” and “Water Table” series), at the Governors’ mansion, and on the campuses of Notre Dame, Wabash College, and Ball State. He also created the Indiana Firefighters’ Memorial and has work as part of collections in Japan, Toronto and China.

For Saxony, Enochs’ created “Rolling Rhythm,” featuring linking limestone pieces. Check out the work-in-progress, above, and model, right.

Your thoughts—not only on the art itself, but also on public art in new developments?

  • I have an unfair advantage because I live in Saxony, but I am excited that we have a work by Dale Enoch. Having public art and some greenspaces adds to the livability of the development. It's been fun watching the installation and discussing with neighbors what we see in the piece--a large bunny? A bear? Buildings?
  • Oh, I _love_ this! Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Lou. Now I want to go see it in person.

    I hope they keep the stand of trees that is behind it.

    I also hope that the developers are paying the artist, not expecting him to do it for free out of the goodness of his heart or for the exposure or some other nonsense.

    There is a lot of public art that does not appeal to me, but I say yes! to public art, in general. Like DK, I enjoy the conversations it prompts.

  • Weren't MOST cities and neighborhoods built for the idea of let's-make-a-town-from-scratch? I live in the Saxony area too...

  1. Only half a million TV Viewers? And thats an increase? I knew Indycar was struggling but I didn't know it was that bad. Hell, if NASCAR hits 5 Million viewers everyone starts freaking out saying its going down hill. It has a long way to before Indycar even hits NASCAR's bad days.

  2. IU has been talking that line for years with no real progress even with the last Dean, Dr. Brater. Why will an outsider, Dr. Hess, make a difference? With no proof of additional resources (cash in the bank), and a concrete plan to move an academic model that has been outdated for decades with a faculty complacent with tenure and inertia, I can count on IU to remain the same during the tenure of Dr. Hess. One ought to look to Purdue and Notre Dame for change and innovation. It is just too bad that both of those schools do not have their own medical school. Competition might wake up IU. My guess is, that even with those additions to our State, IU will remain in its own little world squandering our State's tax dollars. Why would any donor want to contribute to IU with its track record? What is its strategy to deal with the physician shortage for our State? New leadership will not be enough for us to expect any change.

  3. How do you think the Bridges got approved? I spent a couple days researching PAC's and individual contributions to some city council members during that time. My printouts were inches thick on the two I concentrated on. Finally gave up. Was disgusted with all the donations, and who they were from. Would have taken me days and days to compile a complete list. Tried to give it to the Star reporter, but he thought it was all just fine. (and apparently he was treated well himself) He ended up being laid off or fired though. And then of course, there was land donated to the dad's club, or city, as a partial payoff. All done in the shining example of "charity." No, none of these contributions are a coincidence.

  4. I agree what kind of help or if any will be there for Dr. Ley's patients. I was a patient myself.

  5. What about the hundreds of patients who sought this doctor for the right reasons, to quit drugs. what option do these patients now have, experience horrible withdrawl or return to heroin?? those are the choices. what about the children of these former addicts who's parent(s) WILL not b able to maintain their job, for @ least 2 weeks.. There needs to b an emergency clinic opened for these patients.
