Artist Sandy Scott was commissioned to craft not one, but two sculptures for the City of Black Hawk. Originally from the Midwest, Scott moved to Fort Collins, Colorado in an effort to be closer to our Rocky Mountain wildlife. Her first Black Hawk overlooks North Clear Creek from the Mill Street pedestrian bridge, gazing downward as if it’s scanning the water for its next meal. Its sister sculpture roosts at the Hidden Treasure Trailhead located at the Maryland Mountain Recreation Park. Scott’s interest in aviation has played a monumental role in her artistry. As a licensed helicopter pilot for nearly 50 years, Scott attributes her ability to bring the illusion of movement, particularly to birds (including her Black Hawks), from her decades of experience in the air.
