Sculptor Justin Dahl speaking at the unveiling of his work



Note the cut ribbon at the unveiling   ...   "... six sets of stacked spools on casters, each set has multiple oil paintings depicting cultures that make up the cultural diversity of the community and the immigrants that settled in Black Rock, both past and present."
