Pedestrians and vehicles pass “Stan the Submerging Man,” a sculpture by Finley Fryer, recently installed in front of the John Natsoulas Gallery on the corner of First and E streets. Stan was built in Dunsmuir by Fryer, who earned his bachelor of fine arts degree at UC Davis, in collaboration with Kirk LeClaire and Jayne Bruck Fryer and was first installed at the 1999 Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. The nearly 18-foot-tall sculpture is made from fragments of reclaimed plastic toys and colored vinyl demo records. It is lit by 1,000 LED lights. The gallery will host an exhibition of Fryer’s work in January.
