A western Indiana arts group is searching for an artist to create a sculpture honoring the author of Indiana's state song.
Wabash Valley Art Spaces issued a request for qualifications for the project honoring Terre Haute native Paul Dresser. The sculpture will be located in Fairbanks Park near the home where Dresser was born.
The Tribune-Star reports (http://bit.ly/ZMwuyq ) artists must submit images of their past work by July 17. Art Spaces will select up to five finalists in August and meet with them in September.
Finalists will develop a model and final proposal. Art Spaces hopes to select an artist in November.
The project is expected to cost $85,000 and be completed by June 2014.
