Sculptor John Henry's latest steel monument, River High, definitely reaches for the sky. The crisscross of six stoplight red beams soars 55 feet into the air above Laramie, Wyo., in a burst of color that grabs your attention from miles away. Installed near the Laramie Recreation Center, River High is the tallest of 18 multidimensional works in the exhibition Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational, on view at sites around the city through June.
