The Mississippi River Sculpture Park has life sized bronze sculptures. Florence Bird, the Sculptor, recalls: “Finding this deep ancient Mississippi Valley and learning of the people who have inhabited this area and whose descendants are still calling this beautiful region home has been a great adventure.”
Today, there are six life-sized sculptures: Chief Black Hawk, Dr. William Beumont, and son, Israel, a Victorian Lady, a voyager, Emma Big Bear, and Marianne LaBuche.
They are each made especially for the Mississippi River Sculpture Park in Prairie du Chien, to illustrate the history and prehistory of this area.
Florence Bird will be there to speak to you about her work on:
