Phoenix Rising or Red Chicken

We all know about the iconic psuedo “Red Chicken” sculpture within the Phil’s Trail System which is a mountain biking area in Bend, Oregon. But … do you know the story of the actual sculpture, the Phoenix Rising, located at Galveston and 14th street? And what’s the connection to the Red Chicken, the mini version located in our mountain biking trails? In this podcast, we talk with Romy Mortensen of Art in Public Places, a non-profit formed in the 1970s to bring art, culture and education to Bend and Central Oregon.
