Eagle-eyed artist

Artist Scott Luken, of South Dakota, stands next to his sculpture that is a rendition of a bronze eagle monument in commemoration of World War I, which stood in Oakley through 1976 before being relocated to the Antioch fairgrounds. Luken made some cuttings of the white granite sculpture during the Oakley Civic Center unveiling event on Saturday and attendees got to take home small spoils or unused pieces of the granite from which it was crafted. The city will unveil the completed sculpture, which will be installed at Main Street and Norcross Lane, at a city-hosted commemoration event on Veterans Day.
