Rod Kagan Park Dedicated In Ketchum

On Wednesday, Aug. 3, the clouds were gusting above Tim Kagan as he spoke about his late brother, artist Rod Kagan, and his love for the Sun Valley area, the mountains and creating art. More than 100 people attended the city of Ketchum’s dedication ceremony for Rod Kagan Park, which includes Rod Kagan’s sculpture “Idaho Columns,” and is near the YMCA. Teresa and Benjamin Castellano-Wood, Mayor Randy Hall, Sun Valley Center for the Arts Co-Executive Director Kristine Poole and Tim Kagan spoke. They not only talked about the late artist’s love for the community but also of the community’s love for him. Tim Kagan donated the sculpture, and the park was made possible through a network of supporters who donated time, materials and money. It is a testament to Idaho’s mining history and Rod Kagen’s art, which was deeply rooted in Sun Valley.Express photo by David N. Seelig
