Good things that Have Happened
Dancing for Joy Installed in Silverthorne
Just finished installing a trio of my dancers--Dancing for Joy--in front of the new Silverthorne Performing Arts Center. They are stunning in front of the black glass of the building. What a thrill to see them in such a perfect setting.
Peggy Fleming Trophy Completed
Evergreen sculptor Harold Linke was selected by Peggy Fleming Jenkins to create the new Peggy Fleming Trophy for the Broadmoor Skating Club. The award was created by the 1968 Olympic gold medalist to recognize a skater who, like Fleming-Jenkins, excels in artistic expression and presents a performance that is a complete composition.
The inaugural award of the trophy was made in Colorado Springs at the Broadmoor World Arena on Friday June 22, 2018, and was awarded to Timothy Dolensky of Atlanta.
Harold Linke is known for his simple, elegant, lyrical sculptures that capture the essence of the movement and the emotion of the moment. This trophy is in harmony with those themes and is meant to capture the evocative beauty inherent in truly artistic figure skating. Harold said, “Working with Peggy on this project has been such a joy. She has such artistry in her skating that made my sculpture a natural fit for this trophy. I am honored to have been selected to create it, see it presented by Peggy and to meet its first recipient.”
He has placed well over 1000 sculptures in permanent public and private collections throughout the United States and the world.
