Custer sculpture fundraiser nearing goal.

CUSTER — The Custer sculpture committee is asking for help from the public to reach its $70,000 goal to build a sculpture honoring Johnny’s Bandstand. The committee has raised $60,000 to date but is short $10,000. 

It is looking for donations, especially asking those who used to patronize or work at Johnny’s to consider donating. 

The sculpture will be located on South Main Street near Mason County Eastern Schools. The sculptor selected is Tyson Snow, who created two sculptures which are included in the Sculpture Trail located at the Ludington Waterfront Park and Ludington Rotary Park. The bronze sculpture depicts two musicians and a singer standing with an old style microphone.  The steel base includes a bronze plaque bas-relief of dancers. This will be a commissioned piece of sculpture, thus it will be one-of-a-kind and, only in Custer.

Donations may be sent to: Custer Sculpture Project, The Community Foundation for Mason County, P.O. Box 10, Ludington, MI 49431.
