This concept was inspired by the observed natural lines of the river between Mankato and North Mankato and the symbiotic relationship of the two communities.
About Ryan & James Pedersen
Sculptors James and Ryan Pedersen are a father/son collaborative team who create welded constructions in relief and free-standing form. The combination of steel, brass and copper are used in most designs. The earthy colors and textures are achieved through welding, cutting, grinding and heat-treating these materials. The finished artwork illustrates their combined passion for the outdoor environment as an artistic selection of these elements with a stylized approach that is related to various interpretations of the modern landscape.
