  • Press Release: Immediate Release

The Lakeland Art Association is partnering with the City of Warsaw to bring a collection of Seward Johnson sculptures to our community from June through September, 2014.

The public art exhibit titled Walk-n-Wander Warsaw will include life-like sculptures located within walking distance of Warsaw’s Courthouse Square. Mary Bowlin, Outside Sales Manager at the Oakwood Resort in Syracuse, commented, “I saw this exhibit in Auburn and thought it was fabulous!  I will be sure to come to Warsaw and see the sculptures next summer.”

To date, the committee has sponsors for thirteen sculptures, with a goal of twenty. Steve and Suzie Light were the first to commit to sponsoring a sculpture. Others following as master sponsors are: Wes Anglin Re/Max Lakes , CenturyLink, Richard and Linda Dilling, Denny and Kim Fuller, Hall & Marose Silveus Insurance, Kosciusko County Community Foundation, Lake City Bank, McHatton-Sadler Funeral Chapels, Miller’s Merry Manor, and Esther Pfleiderer Charitable Trust. In addition, the Kosciusko County Convention, Recreation & Visitor Commission will sponsor two sculptures.

The specific sculptures chosen cannot be confirmed for next summer until a leasing contract is signed with the Seward Johnson Foundation and payment can be made. The number of sculptures to be displayed will depend on the success of fundraising efforts by year end. There are multiple levels of sponsorship available. A full list of sponsors and complete information is available on the City’s website at www.warsaw.in.gov.

A Master Donor Board will be displayed in Downtown Warsaw during the four-month exhibit. Colorful brochures with the walking tour map and listing of sculptures with sponsors will be available throughout the community. The exhibit is expected to draw visitors from across northern Indiana and surrounding states.
