Petersen bale sculpture

The Chad and Danae Petersen family continued its tradition of providing motorists with a bit of country art as they drive on Highway 59 just south of Schleswig. For the fourth year in a row, the Petersens have places a hay-bale sculpture in the field just north of their farmstead. This year it’s this wriggling creature with antennae. Following are sculptures that treated motorists in past years: 2016 – a bear with a drum; 2017 – a dog keeping watch on the highway; 2018 – a lion, representing the mascot of the Denison-Schleswig Monarchs. The Denison-Schleswig girls’ basketball team posed with the sculpture last year. Photo by Gordon Wolf
