Volunteers Needed to Help Build Community Sculpture

Posted: Updated:

A Japanese artist begins work on a large-scale outdoor sculpture at United Tribes Technical College on Friday.

Tsubasa Kato is an installation artist who's "Pull and Raise" sculptures have involved communities in Japan and Europe. The projects are said to "harness the power of communities," inspiring people to raise one another to achieve goals, visions and dreams. The United Tribes sculpture is his first in the United States.

"We are very excited to work with Kato and his team," says Dustin Thunder Hawk, UTTC recruiter and coordinator of the project. "To be successful, we need help from the community. The public is welcome and invited to participate."

Kato's projects involve the construction of a large wooden structure. When finished, the sculpture is hoisted upright with long ropes by many volunteers.  About 200 people will be needed for the project to be successful.

Assembly of the United Tribes "Pull and Raise" sculpture begins at noon on Friday on the east side of the United Tribes Skill Center building. The community pull and raise event is set for Saturday, September 7 at 5 p.m., during the United Tribes International Powwow.

It will take about six days to assemble the 33-foot-tall structure.
