Lincoln City: Regatta Park metal sculpture at Regatta Park finally gets a name!

Sparky, Wish Guardian
Regatta Park
Lincoln City

From: Let There Be Arts

As a result of our recent naming contest the Regatta Lake Creature has a new name. The name combines two entries submitted by two students.

Rachel Scheuing, Taft Elementary 3rd grader, who entered the name SPARKY, and Allyson Hall, Oceanlake Elementary 2nd grader, who entered WISH GUARDIAN.

CONGRATULATIONS!

The Lake Creature was created by local artist, Heidi Erickson, and was constructed by Erickson and her fellow metal sculptor, Doug Kroger. It was commissioned by Lincoln City’s Public Arts Committee and was two years in the making. It was installed at Regatta Park in August, 2012. The naming contest was held during the month of December and there were 256 names submitted by student at Oceanlake and Taft Elementary Schools, as well as from the community at large. Those entries were given to a small committee that selected 13 names they thought were good candidates. Those 13 were then give to the artist, Heidi Erickson, and her assistant, Doug Kroger, for the final selection. They decided to combine two names. Nobody involved in the selection knew who submitted the names, so it’s wonderful that both schools are represented!
