“Loggers” is a fabricated steel sculpture depicting one man driving a team of two horses, transporting a large log on skids, with another man standing on the log navigating. “Loggers” was gifted to the Neville Public Museum by Associated Bank.  

It is a depiction of the mid-19th century logging era in Wisconsin, measuring approximately 12 feet high by 9 feet wide and 34 feet long. The sculpture dates from 1980 and was commissioned by the bank’s predecessor. It is signed and dated by artist Lyndon Fayne Pomeroy (1925-2018). 

We extend special thanks to our community partners for all of their efforts: Associated Bank, Renco Machine Inc., Loch Construction Co Inc., Ambrosius Concrete Supplies, Red-D-Mix Concrete Inc., and Primum Bonum.   

About the Artist: Lyndon Fayne Pomeroy received his Bachelor of Applied Arts and his Masters in Art from Bozeman. He taught at Northern Montana College and then Eastern Montana College until 1961. He made his living as a sculptor from then on. When creating sculpture in steel the process was controlled by five anatomies. The anatomies had no particular order of importance. According to Pomeroy’s obituary the anatomies “were the material being used, the tool being applied to the material, the theme of the idea, his knowledge of the materials and his skill level with the tools, and the monkey on his back.”  .
