Arc of Dreams hits the road

Denver, Colo. (KSFY) - Sioux Falls newest piece of art hit the road Tuesday morning.

Sections of the Arc of Dreams were loaded onto six semis in Denver early Tuesday morning. The sculpture was assembled and polished at site in the mile high city.

Crews will make the seven-hour drive to Sturgis, where artist Dale Lamphere has a studio. Lamphere will put the final touches on the sculpture over the winter.

The Arc of Dreams will be installed over the Big Sioux River in downtown Sioux Falls in the spring of 2019.

This one-of-a-kind sculpture has been in the works for five years, from the design process to fundraising and construction. At the center of the Arc of Dreams is a 18-foot gap, 70 feet above the river, representing the leap of faith dreamers take to see their dreams come true.

KSFY is following the trip. Look for updates later today on KSFY News.
