Deer Statue
KALISPELL, Mont. -

After 6 years in storage, a statue purchased by Kalispell taxpayers will be installed.

On Friday August 9, the statue will go up in Kalispell on the Northwest corner of Main and Idaho Street.

The city of Kalispell commissioned local artist Sherry Sanders to sculpt a bronze statue of two white tail buck deer back in 2007.

The council decided a few months back to finally install the statue.

Kalispell City Manager Doug Russell tells NBC Montana that the city wants to hold the ceremony to thank the artist for the work she's done.

"We definitely appreciate the partnership we've had with the artist and we definitely anticipate it being an appreciated work within the city of Kalispell and definitely appreciate the work the artist has done and definitely want to be able to thank her formally in a public setting," Russell said.

The statue will be unveiled to the public at 11 a.m. this Friday in Kalispell on the Northwest corner of Main and Idaho, also known as the intersection of Highway 93 and Highway 2.
