A new sculpture will soon be placed in the courtyard between the Visitors Center and the Bartholomew County Public Library Plaza.

Arthur Smith, with the Columbus Area Arts Council, says the piece is being put together by local artist Martin Beach. The piece, called "Modern Totem," will stand at 9' 2" tall and weigh nearly 8,000 pounds. When complete, the piece will be an obelisk form consisting of two stacked, black granite stones.

Smith says the project is being funded through special fund raising done during the annual UnCommon Cause event. He says that over the last two events, more than $18,000 was raised for this project.
