The village of Egg Harbor recently unveiled its latest public art installation.

William Jauquet's steel sculpture "The Rooster" graces Harbor View Park, located in the middle of the village, adjacent to the marina. The piece, valued at $18,000.

Jauquet began his art career as a rural folk carver, becoming nationally recognized in only a few years. He started wood-carving in 1978 and began working in bronze in 1986. He casts his studio bronzes in his own foundry near Green Bay. Around 2007, Jauquet began working in welded steel. Many of his metal sculptures can be seen in the Edgewood Orchard Galleries sculpture garden in Fish Creek.

The Public Art Committee was established in 2010 by the village of Egg Harbor in an effort to create and distribute visual and aesthetic pieces throughout the community. The public art installations are funded by room tax revenue money, not by property tax dollars.

For more information about the art installations, contact the village of Egg Harbor administrator, Josh Van Lieshout, at (920) 868-3334.
