50-foot-tall statue of woman lends 'Dignity' to South Dakota's skyline



CHAMBERLAIN, S.D. High atop a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, Chamberlain's newest resident has found her new home.

After two years of planning, designing and creating the 50-foot-tall statue, called "Dignity," the project culminated with a celebration of the time and hard work that went into the effort.

More than 200 people converged on the Chamberlain rest stop on Interstate 90 to recognize the state's newest landmark, a stainless steel statue depicting a Native American woman draped in a star quilt.

Black Hills area artist and South Dakota artist laureate Dale Lamphere, who designed the sculpture, and Norm and Eunabel McKie, who commissioned "Dignity," were on hand to celebrate the completion of the project Saturday.

1. That's quite nice, thank you for posting this.

I saw the photo and my first thought was Dale Lamphere, turns out he designed it but how did I come up with the name? Weird.

2. You're welcome

and it is a stately piece of art. I don't stand a chance of getting the name of any artist correct so you are one step ahead of me.
