Dignity

It's not very often that I get to talk about South Dakota artists.  Dale Lamphere is  However, today I am really excited to show you the newest South Dakota sculpture that will be along I-90 by Chamberlain called "Dignity".

Dignity is a 50 foot sculpture of a Native American dancer that is being created out of steel.  She will dance high above the Missouri River and will be an amazing site to see.  Her unveiling ceremony will be this weekend in Chamberlain, September 17.

This is Dale in front of the stuatue.

  1. I do not like this because it is a was of material. That material could have gone to build a home for the people that are unfortunate, that they don't have a place to live. To me it is just a waste of material.

  3. I think that it is cool that someone from SD decided to put their time and effort into doing something like this. This is very creative, but I am not exactly a huge fan of this for the simple fact that I really like colors. I think if it was more colorful it would definitely stand out even more than it already does.

  5. This is really cool looking. This type of art reminds me of the statue of liberty. I think this would be a fun and creative art project to do. I think we should do something similar to this in class. Overall I think I would enjoy creating art like this.

  8. It's a cool idea, but it looks rather bland and colorless. I'd like to see more color and detail implemented into the piece. Even though, someday I would like to stop and see it on my way out to the black hills.

  18. I think this form of art is very creative. It looks like it would be very costly, and would take a lot of time. I don't know if I would ever be up to make something this big!

  19. I think that this is actually really cool, to be honest. Although I do believe that it would of been more cool if they used a different material other than metal.

  20. I love the piece where the bear is breaking threw what looks like a door. i love how they went realistic and actually used real wood. i like how it was 3D it wasn't just a drawing.

  35. This is cool especially since it is in South Dakota. He had to have spent a lot of time just forming the right shape of metal to fit in the correct spot. I wonder how long it took to put it all together.
