On any given weekend at the City Museum, there's a good chance you'll spot sculptor Paul Bayer carving away on his dream project before you even walk in the door. An astounding 20 ton, 6'x6'x7'block of solid white marble, Bayer describes the piece as “probably my biggest achievement.” He continues, “It's a reminder to protect creativity for the children and the child in all of us so we can do things like creating something that's cool that we can all be a part of just like the City Museum itself.”
