Foo Dog Column by Glen Zweygardt

Downtown Cleveland, Mississippi

Glenn Zweygardt continues his long-standing relationship inside the Mississippi Delta with his installation of Foo Dog Column. This marks the second time Zweygardt has been included in an inaugural installation site, first in the Garden at Delta State in 1999 and now, on the downtown walking trail in Cleveland. Zweygardt has seven pieces featured in the Mathews-Sanders Sculpture Garden Permanent Collection, including the commissioned piece at the head of the Garden on campus, Pam Remembered. Set to turn 75 this year, Zweygardt is still producing new works and showing internationally. “Listen, if I’m able and fit and still have ideas for new pieces, I will be creating. There is no quit in this body and I don’t think I’ve said all I want to say as an artist,” he said.
