Redding, Calif -- A Redding woman is working hard to see art in the city after vandals destroyed a pair of sculptures that were on display on the side of I-5 in Redding.
The red and blue bighorn sheep sculptures were destroyed last year , but now Claudia Caldarola is working to get new ones.
Caldarola says since announcing the art contest to fellow art students and local artists she’s received more than 200 sketch submissions.
Two of those sketches will then be chosen to be built and replace the red and blue bighorn sheep sculptures.
But that requires a lot of fundraising.
“All the money fundraised will go towards the actual materials and also to commission the fabricator that’s making the pieces," said Caldarola.
So far the group has collected $650 but are hoping to raise at least $1,000.
Caldarola is planning a Green Day Yard Sale for March 10th and 11th, as well as a Mod Pizza Fundraiser on April 3rd from 4 to 8 p.m.
If you would like to donate or have any questions you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
