Story:  Wind Emotions is one of the sculptures included in the Gratitude Project.  Tom Anderson shares some history on behalf of the entire Anderson family, “In the 1920s my grandfather stood in the river cutting ice. The chute to slide the ice to his ice house was where Wind Emotions is now.  The river has changed from industrial to recreation…and we are moving for more change.”
