Fenton

Fine Arts Sculpture Center & Oleg Kedria

Folks have been having fun in Fenton since the very beginning. In fact, the city was originally named Dibbleville until some early settlers had a little too much fun one night. Legend has it that the name change was due to a high stakes card game played by three men in 1837. William M. Fenton and Robert LeRoy and anoter made a wager to rename the city after the player with the best hand. It's not too difficult to guess who won! Though William Fenton won the privilege of having a city in his name, the other settlers weren't forgotten either. LeRoy is the namesake of Leroy Street, which runs right into historic Dibbleville, the neighborhood that still bears the name of the area's first settler, Clark Dibble. There you have it. Great entertainment is a part of Fenton's heritage! This monumental project in bronze will decorate the city of Fenton. On Artprize 2016 we will present the Interior sculpture in Bronze.
