Artist Continues Main Street Square Sculpture Project

During the summer of 2015, sculptor Masayuki Nagase completed five more pieces of his massive sculpture located in Main Street Square in downtown Rapid City. According to a Rapid City Journal article, the project will be 21 pieces total, 14 of which have now been completed. The most recent five were revealed to the public on Monday, October 5. Nagase is sculpting granite spires and blocks around the perimeter of Main Street Square at the corner of Main and Sixth streets.

The sculpture tells the story of the local area, where the "wind" represents the Badlands and the "water" represents the Black Hills.

Nagase began working on the project in 2013 and is set to finish in 2017.
