Buffalo Statue

Renowned artist John Lopez from Lemmon, South Dakota, uses welded sculpture to tell the stories of our past and inspire our future. His artwork includes dinosaurs, prairie wildlife, and human heroes. Each piece is unique and is designed to capture the imagination of the viewer. <br> <br>

The Buffalo commissioned by the Fort Pierre Historical Sculptures Committee will be a one-of-a-kind piece that incorporates many of the people, places, and things that are significant to our area. This statue will be a keystone feature at the Missouri River Bridge Plaza, scheduled for completion in 2025, and will serve as a focal point for showcasing Fort Pierre’s long connection to this magnificent animal.  <br> <br>
