Harmony discusses musician carving project


Fri, Aug 16th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Government

Harmony, Minn. resident and owner of Slim’s Woodshed, Stan Maroushek, approached the council a couple of months ago regarding a vision he had for a project to help bring people into town. The statues would be placed in a path throughout the town for a “walking tour” to help bring people to town and get them to see other parts of the town off Main Street.

Maroushek has applied for and received a grant to build one of the statues, and the city has received grant money for two more. There is already one statue located outside of Andrew Batstone’s accounting office.

The locations that Maroushek chose for the statues included the Cancer Memorial Park, the IGA, Harmony Town Hall, and the Visitor’s Center.

The city had previously handed the issue over to the Arts Board. The Arts Board decided that the city’s statues should be placed at the Visitor’s Center and the Cancer Park. Maroushek was not in agreement with this, so the issue came back to the city council.

Chris Giesen of the Economic Development Authority (EDA) spoke to the council on behalf of Maroushek. He explained that Maroushek would prefer the Visitor’s Center statue be the last one to be placed.

“We need people to walk through town and see the beautiful town we have,” said Maroushek. He added when people see the town they may decide to open a business there.

The Arts Board and the City both had concerns about vandalism, as the statues at the Hobo Park have had some damage done to them in the past. There was also concern about liability. Maroushek said the statues will be anchored like the ones at the hobo park.

Mayor Steve Donney made a motion to have the two city statues go up at the IGA and the Cancer Park, with the other one going up at the town hall.

Ralph Beastrom, owner of the Selvig House and member of the EDA, agreed with Maroushek. He said most people go to the Visitor’s Center, and he feels it’s not necessary to have one there. “It’s more critical to get them around town,” he said. “I really don’t see the need for the first one to be there.”

Councilor Jim Bakken felt differently, commented that the city turned the issue over to the Arts Board, and he doesn’t feel the city should undermine that decision. Councilor Debbie Swenson agreed.

Maroushek said he would not finish the project if they did not do it th .....
