March 19, 2012 · Updated 9:04 AM
With a little help, Oak Harbor artist Larry Marcell, center, installs his bronze mermaid on the corner of Dock Street and SE Pioneer Way. Marcell said the piece took about six months to complete and was inspired by the historic Greek marble figure, Venus DeMilo. It is one of three public art works that will be installed as part of the downtown street project. Behind Marcell is Project Manager Larry Cort, Project Engineer Joe Stowell, and Oak Harbor Arts Commission member Rick Lawler. An official unveiling will be held at 4 p.m. on April 6.
