Bison-tennial Public Art Project

The public is invited to watch artist Carl Mosher as he paints the 100-pound bison that will be displayed as part of the Indiana Bicentennial celebration.

BISON TENNIAL ART PROJECT PUBLIC

Mosher will be painting the 5-foot-tall fiberglass bison Wednesday, May 11-Friday, May 13, between 9:30 a.m. and  approximately 3 p.m. at the Northern Indiana Lakes Country Enterprise Center, 907 S. Wayne St., Angola.

A contest was held earlier this year and artists submitted designs for the bison. An eight-member committee, comprised of various community members, chose Mosher’s design. The bison will feature various scenes, including a modern farm, lakes and Pokagon State Park, the Soldier’s Monument and courthouse in downtown Angola plus a pioneer farm, ox cart, Native American icons and wooded scenes.

Mosher teaches local painting classes. His art has received wide recognition and is featured in sponsorship for many wildlife organizations, including Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited, Whitetails Unlimited and the Wild Turkey Federation. “I consider my art a success when it touches a common memory or shared experience with the viewer,” he said.

The bison is sponsored by the Steuben County Tourism Bureau and the Indiana Association of United Ways spear-headed the project throughout the state. Locally, the Steuben County United Way helped coordinate the project. Each county in Indiana will display at least one bison. Historically, bison were a major presence in the terrain and commerce in the Hoosier state’s early years. The state’s bicentennial celebration culminates with statehood day, Dec. 11. 

The 8th Annual Lake James Antique Boat and Car Show is set for Saturday, July 29 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Each year more and more antique boats and cars are displayed at the old Boat House Marine on Lake James near the Jimmerson Lake Bridge on County Road 300 West. Besides the classics, there will be artists, musicians and antique outboard motors on display.


Fireworks will be displayed over the Fourth of July weekend

On Saturday, July 1, fireworks are scheduled at dusk at the following locations:

Lake James at Pokagon State Park
Hog Hill in Hamilton
Crooked Lake
Clear Lake

Angola's fireworks are set for Tuesday, July 4 at Commons Park.

On Saturday, July 8, fireworks will be displayed as part of Fremont's MusicFest.
