Etched In Stone

Despite last week’s unexpected death of Yankton sculptor Scott Luken, participants in the School of Hard Rocks national program — in which he played a major role — still completed their projects at his studio as a tribute to him. No funeral will be held for Luken, but a celebration of his life will be held from 2-7 p.m. today (Tuesday) at the Dakota Territorial Capitol Replica in Riverside Park. Anyone is welcome to visit and share their respects and memories during that time.
