New Interactive Art Featured in Memorial Park

A new piece of interactive art has been installed in Memorial Park, Rapid City Journal reports. The sculpture, which is a 6 foot tall, 9,000 pound piece of granite, was named Rockspinner by its creator, Zachary Coffin. When perfectly balanced on its unique platform, it can be spun and moved around by anyone, even small children. The intention is for people to both admire the art and interact with it.

The sculpture cost $60,000 and was paid for by a Bush Foundation grant administered by Destination Rapid City.
