New moon sculptures set to debut May 3

The second installment in the Wink at the Moon sculpture series by Ohio artist Jay Risner will make its debut on Saturday, May 3, at the Casa Chic Derby Day Wine Tasting at Marley’s Downtown Ballroom.

According to Judie Presar, president of the Downtown Wapakoneta Partnership, Casa Chic’s relationship with Risner began because some of his other sculptures were already being sold at the store.

“We were deliberating on something that could promote Wapakoneta and also raise funds for the Facade Improvement Program,” Presar said. “Laura Clementz suggested speaking with Jay about creating a Wink at the Moon sculpture to benefit the Wapakoneta Partnership’s Facade Improvement Program.”
