MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Hank Aaron State Trail will get a new sculpture. Mineral Point artist Peter Flanary created a work entitled “Bridge.”

The sculpture, valued at $27,000, consists of 20 glacial boulders averaging about two feet in diameter. The boulders are fitted and pinned together to represent the idea of connection.

The Menomonee Valley Partners, Inc., a non-profit group dedicated to revitalizing the Menomonee Valley donated the sculpture to the state last month.

The trail follows the Menomonee River from Lake Michigan west about 11.5 miles. The trail is a popular destination for hikers, bikers, skaters, walkers and runners from around the Milwaukee area.
