For the Baker City Herald

What began as an ordinary salt block has been turned, by molten bronze, into a unique piece of art in Baker City.

Well, almost — first the 13 pieces must be welded together to re-create the salt lick, which at four feet high is quite a bit larger than the original.

The sculpture was pattered after a real salt block entered in the annual Great Salt Lick contest and auction put on by Whit Deschner to raise money for Parkinson’s disease research.

The plan is to install the art piece by June 1 on the Resort Street sidewalk that adjoins Court Street Plaza.
