“A Song for Indiana” to Fall for


Today on my blog, Sheila T Illustrated, at sheilatphotography.wordpress.com, I share my Fall photos of the most recent addition to the Wabash Valley Art Spaces Outdoor Sculpture Collection,  a public art organization located in Terre Haute, Indiana. “A Song for Indiana” by Teresa Clark of Terre Haute was dedicated last week in Fairbanks Park.

Following is an excerpt from Terre Haute Tribune-Star feature writer Mark Bennett’s story published today, Oct. 26, 2014:

“Last week, Terre Haute dedicated a sculpture at Fairbanks Park, commemorating Paul Dresser, his masterpiece, “On the Banks of the Wabash Far Away,” and the river itself. The bronze art piece, titled “A Song for Indiana,” by local sculptor Teresa Clark encompasses the man, his composition that became the Indiana state song, and the official state river, the Wabash.

At the dedication ceremony in the Girl Scouts building adjacent to the riverside park, Clark told a crowd of more than 100 people, “This piece is based on where I felt Paul Dresser’s inspiration began” — the images in its melodic chorus, the moonlight, the sycamores and the iconic stream.”

And now for “The Rest of the Story” read Bennett’s column, Something about “Mary” – Local girl became the face of ‘On the Banks,’ while the song’s real subject remained a mystery
