The bronze sculpture “Harvest Dreams” by world-renowned sculptor George Lundeen arrived last week at the Nebraska Prairie Museum in Holdrege. Mr. Lundeen himself brought the sculpture from his studio in Loveland, Colorado.
The sculpture is too heavy to lift by hand, so the museum’s antique forklift (made in the 1950’s by Allmand Brothers Manufacturing) was used to lift the sculpture out of the pickup and gently put it down in the museum shop. The base is ready for the sculpture, and Mr. Lundeen will set it up the day before the museum’s Fall Festival and 50th Anniversary Celebration.
The sculpture will hide beneath a cover until the official unveiling at 11:00 am Saturday, September 24th during Fall Festival.
