SALISBURY — A fish Glenn Zweygardt caught 15 miles off the coast of Florida inspired the sculpture now standing in downtown Salisbury.
Zweygardt’s mahi mahi, frozen in Miami and flown to his studio in upstate New York where he cast it in bronze, swims around “Tropical Encounter” next to the Rowan Museum on Council Street.
The 1,200-pound, 10-foot-tall creation is one of 16 installed Friday for the 2011 Salisbury Sculpture Show. This marks the third year the city’s Public Art Committee has put on the show, paid for with grants and private donations.
For complete details and a map of each sculpture, see Sunday’s Salisbury Post.
