Fiberglass livestock has been spotted “grazing” in front of local civic and commercial buildings in Webster, Dudley, and Oxford. But before you say “Eww!” — or even more appropriately “Ewe!” — rest assured that no one is trying to pull the wool over one’s eyes with this faux flock popping up in front of banks, municipal buildings, and storefronts. In fact, “Slater’s Sheep,” as they have been called, is a community art project supporting the …

Most of the time, when art is visible in a community, it instantly becomes a public art project. It doesn’t matter if the art is murals, paintings, or large art installations; it is still works of art made by artists showing their creative side while completing that artwork. When we refer to public art, we talk about using fiberglass animals or sculptures as a canvas that anyone can paint; it does not have to be …

At Evergreen Home Cemetery in Beatrice, a few yards away from U.S. Highway 136, there are a group of graves marking the final resting place for local infants and babies.
