— Lifesize "High
Four" Installed at Cleveland Park —
September 26, 2007 — It's good to
be back. For the past month I've been juggling travel, work projects/deadlines
and house guests. I wasn't
able keep all the balls in the air — DaDane of the Week was dropped, along
with a few other things. I can't recall the last time I missed 3
consecutive installments. It hasn't happened in 10+ years.
Louise Peterson visited us September
13-16. She had flown to Columbia, SC, from her home in Guffey, Colorado to attend
the dedication of her beautiful life-size (54") bronze, High Four, at Cleveland
Park in Greenville, SC. We drove to Greenville on the 15th and got there just
in time for Louise to take the podium. The dedication attracted quite a crowd.
Before unveiling High Four, Louise addressed the audience as television and newspaper
reporters recorded the event.
She was later interviewed on camera for an evening news broadcast.

The acquisition of High Four was a community
effort. Donors included the Greenville Arts Commission, Greater Greenville Chamber
of Commerce Leadership Class 32, Franklin Street Partners, with help from the
Greenville Kennel Club, Camp Bow Wow and the Cleveland Park Animal Hospital.
