Into the Wind, 2011
Other Information: Jane DeDecker's bronze sculpture Into the Wind arrived April 2, 2011 and was placed on a newly landscaped portion of RCA's Sculpture Garden. The piece was made possible by The Margaret Sue Rust Foundation in Memory of Monroe Rust. Facing the prevailing southeast wind, a lone figure is perched on the bow of a boat - evoking a sense of wonder, sensitivity and pride. The figure brings to mind embarking on a personal journey -- which is innately human and especially true for the many artists that visit the Art Center.

DeDecker is a widely acclaimed artist with a long list of awards and permanent installations all over the nation. Her influences include Kent Ullberg, whose "Rites of Spring" was the first major sculpture dedicated in RCA's garden in 2000. Ullberg's continued interest in shaping the garden contributed greatly to this project being realized.

The Art Center wishes to thank The Margaret Sue Rust Foundation for their continued vision and support of a lasting, meaningful landscape, the Sculpture Garden Committee, and to the many members and volunteers who dedicate their time to this effort.
