The MonDak Heritage Center announces the unveiling of the Sidney Vietnam Veterans Memorial Sculpture, Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at the MonDak Heritage Center, 120 3rd Ave SE, Sidney. Join us for the unveiling of "No Soldier Left Behind," a bronze sculpture by artist Lyle Schwabauer recognizing local men and women that served in Vietnam and the military during the Vietnam War. The sculpture is the culmination of efforts by Margaret and Nolan Mikelson, alumni of Sidney High School who started the project as a way to honor classmates that served in the war. Photographs of the Vietnam War taken by photographer Carl Hansen and other records from the MDHC Collections will complement the sculpture.
Schwabauer is a self-taught artist operating out of the Mountain Sage Gallery in Helena, and Hansen worked as a photographer for the Smithsonian before retiring in 2009. Both are also alumni of Sidney High School.
The unveiling of "No Soldier Left Behind" is FREE to the public. Light refreshments served. It will be on display at the MonDak through August 31. MDHC is open Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday from 1-4 p.m. Admission is FREE. For more information call 406-433-3500 or e-mail [email protected]
