Winner told in Ring Out for Art contest

‘Embrace Change’ by Jolene Peters

“Embrace Change”

Jolene Peters repeated as first place winner in the people’s choice voting in the third annual Ring Out for Art sculpture contest held as part of the Bell Tower Festival.
Peters received $2,000 from contest sponsor Home State Bank for her colorful sculpture, “Embrace Change.” Last year, “We Are Greene County,” which Peters and Shane Olson created together, was awarded first place.

Second place in the 2018 contest went to Hilde DeBruyne of Cumming for her sculpture entitled “Connected.” She received $1,000 in prize money. Zach Bowman of Ankeny placed third and received a $500 prize for “When Love and Hate Collide.”

All three sculptures will remain on display on the courthouse plaza through October.
The Ring Out for Art contest is co-sponsored by Jefferson Matters: Main Street and Home State Bank. The county board of supervisors and the secondary roads department provide the display platforms.

Public art in the Main Street district is a draw for visitors to the downtown, a Jefferson Matters spokesperson said.
