About the Artist

Artist: O.V. Shaffer

Artist Statement:
Glacial Edge stands as melting pieces of glacial ice floating in a pool of water. O.V. Schaffer was selected to create a fountain sculpture for the newly constructed Neville Public Museum in 1983. The sculpture is inspired by this region's geological past.

Born in 1928, O.V. Shaffer became a renowned artist in Wisconsin, with more than 1,200 pieces held in collections throughout the Midwest. His work also adorns many public and private buildings, such as the Madison Public Library, Beloit College Campus, and Riverside Park in West Bend. He passed away in February 2021, at the age of 93.

In memory of the McGinnis Family of Old Fort Howard and Green Bay.
