Take an Ada art walk

Part 5 in a series on The Remington Walk "The Cheyenne"

AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STORY -

Summer is a great time to explore the art spread across the Ada community – especially for viewers unable to visit art galleries elsewhere in Ohio.

As a weekly series, The Icon will feature the art located on The Remington Walk on the Ohio Northern University campus. For some viewers, this series is familiar. For others, it may be a first-time experience. 

Either way, it’s an opportunity to take a walk and view some art that is uniquely Ada. The Walk is spread through campus and may be viewed by following the ONU walking path, beginning near Affinity Village, west of The Freed Center.

The information about the Remington Walk is provided by ONU.

This week’s feature
The Cheyenne – 1901

This piece commemorates two doom races: the Cheyenne Indian and the American bronco. It pays tribute to a fighting and fearless people.

Note: This is his first bronze created with NO hoofs on the ground and it is his first ferocious warrior on horseback. The buffalo hide strategically provides artistic balance and mechanical support.

It strips his Indian rider to a join cloth and primitive implements of a warrior as it depicts a frightful forward charge as if Indian and horse were one in flight.
