The Heron Has Landed
The controversial sculpture HERONS LANDING created by international artist
JOCK HILDEBRAND found a permanent home in a beautiful park in Nelson, B.C. last month.
A dedication ceremony was held on October 19th, 2012, attended by Nelson City officials, arts administrators, the donor of the sculpture MICHAEL LOBSINGER, and HILDEBRAND.
Mr. Lobsinger, who commissioned and paid for the piece, asked Hildebrand to help him find an alternate home for the 25ft bronze sculpture, after placing it in its intended location in a Kelowna development was no longer an option.
Stay tuned for more news!
Since 2008 Jock has been working with some additional technology. He is now able to provide 3-D renderings of ‘virtual sculptures’ for clients to aid in the selection process.
This allows for a visual representation of sculptures in their intended settings and is valuable for the planning process, especially when working with architects and developers.
