Resident seeks artwork swept away by flood

This sculpture, created by Arnie Weimer, was swept away during last week's Mendenhall River flooding. Owner Dixie Hood, of View Drive, is hoping to encourage local residents to keep an eye out for it and to contact her if they see it.

Last week’s Mendenhall River flooding swept away a unique 32-inch high driftwood sculpture created by local artist Arnie Weimer. View Drive resident Dixie Hood is hoping to get it back. She is appealing for a public lookout on land and sea for this personal treasure; Weimer’s “Wood Spirit” has graced the forest walkway in her front yard for more than two decades.

If you have any information on this piece, please contact Hood at 789-2068 or leave a message at 586-2200.
