(LE MARS)--Thirty-two cones and a cow are being placed throughout Le Mars for a public art project.


The Olson Cultural Event Center cone, in downtown Le Mars, painted by Le Mars artist Jean Wiener is provided by JRE Property Pros of Le Mars.

Russell Johnson of Omaha created automotive action in the cone created for Total Sales and Service on Business Highway 75 South.


Lisa Scheitler brought a financial theme to the top of the Great Southern Bank cone on Plymouth Street Northwest.


The cone at the Cleveland Castle Playground area by the clock tower was painted for Tetra pak  by Robin Whitehead with a nature theme.


The others cones will be added as artists complete them. City of Le Mars Public Works employees are placing the cones.
