Dawn Weimer was a bronze sculptor for fifteen years before being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Her last piece is a 21-foot-long statue of two rams fighting called “Rocky Mountain Rumble.” This piece will be mounted 25 feet in the air at Colorado State University’s new on-campus football stadium. It is not Weimer’s first sculpture at CSU though. “Ram Proud” was installed in 1999, and is one of fifty of her statues across the country. Tom Weimer, Dawn’s husband, now takes care of the business and will be taking the sculpture on a tour of Colorado to promote the piece and raise money for its production and installation costs.
