The 18-foot metal sculpture Drills arrived at the entrance to the Marshalltown High School Roundhouse on November 28.
In a matter of hours crews were able to install the sculpture depicting three basketball players from artist Gail Folwell of Colorado, who was on site for the installation.
Leading the project was the Marshalltown Public Art Committee, which received funding through an Iowa Great Places grant administered by the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
“I’m very thrilled with it,” said Mary Giese of M-PAC, which is a division of the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance.
A dedication ceremony for the piece is being planned for sometime in 2017.
