Dancers - by O.V.Shaffer
7' x 12' x 8'
Locattion: Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens
at Rock River Rec Path, Rockford, IL.

From the Rockford Park District brochure..
A Wisconsin native, Shaffer enjoys working with organic shapes. When creating Dancers, he envisioned a piece that would sit above people's shoulders and would be evident to drivers passing by. The piece was commissioned by Cherryvale Mall developer Charlie Brown and installed in 1973 in front of Marshall Fields. In 2011, it was donated by CBL properties / Cherryvale Mall to the Rockford Park District to be placed at the Nichoilas Conservatory and Gardens.
