Humpback Whale SculptureThis Page Last Updated: December 22nd, 2011
Greetings from The Whale Project ..
The intermediate stage (eight-foot) whale “Spike”–bound for UAS– Is summering on the lawn at the JACC, and enjoying a steady stream of visitors taking photos. The University of Alaska SE art students painted a nearly-life sized shadow on the wall of the JACC showing how tall the proposed sculpture will be!
Juneau Arts & Humanities joins with a local group to place a life-scale bronze sculpture of a breaching humpbacked whale on the waterfront in Juneau. Created by RT “Skip” Wallen, the sculpture will rise out of a reflecting pool with jets creating churning bubbles at the surface, sheets of water cascading off the fins and body, and mist near the blow-hole, all lending to the dramatic, majestic playfulness of the sculpture.
