Building a sculpture that will stand approximately 70 feet tall with 150 foot-wide arches is no easy task alone.

Dale Lamphere is building the Arc of Dreams with two welders, Andy Roltgen and Grant Standard, in his studio outside of Sturgis.

“‘You can’t rush fine art,’ that’s a quote we use up here often,” Roltgen said. ” You’ve got to give it your all, you’ve got to put everything you’ve got into it.”

“It’s precision work for sure,” Standard said. “It can be really challenging at times, but also really rewarding.”

The Arc of Dreams will be installed over the Big Sioux River in downtown Sioux Falls later this year.

KSFY is proud to be the official media partner of the Arc of Dreams project.
