International Harvester, a.k.a. "Harvey"
This sculpture is dedicated in honor and memory of our major benefactor and friend, Ann Krumm. Ann's influence with the arts will be long felt in our community.  This sculpture was funded by monies collected by "friends of Ann Krumm" to honor her generosity to the arts over the many years of her philanthropy in Newton.

This bronze sculpture was created by Kim Shaklee of    Brighton, CO.

Ol' Lonely Sculpture
Sited and dedicated in June 2007.  Ol'Lonely symbolizes the rich heritage of Newton and the relationship with the Maytag Company. Captured in bronze by local artist Nick Klepinger, this sculpture immortalizes Maytag's commitment to dependable and quality products. This life size image graces Maytag Park overlooking the swimming pool. 113 maquette reproductions are available, cast in pewter, representing the number of years Maytag was in Newton.
