"The Idaho Lumberjack" public art to be dedicated August 15

A new piece of public art will be dedicated at 11:30 a.m., August 15.  The statue, “The Idaho Lumberjack,” is located on the sidewalk next to McEuen Park at 6th Street & Front Avenue.


“The Idaho Lumberjack,” created by local artist Terry Lee, was commissioned by the Idaho Forest Group and donated to the City of Coeur d’Alene “in tribute to Idaho’s loggers, working to enhance the health of our forests and ensure the availability of our precious resource to sustain our rural economies for future generations.”   The statue is located next to the extremely popular “American Worker” and “Idaho Farmer” statues, also created by Terry Lee, and donated to the City of Coeur d’Alene by Dean and Cindy Haagenson, and The Jacklin Family.
