Although not officially confirmed, it looks like the Adopt-a-River program will commission Rabi to create an outdoor sculpture to be displayed at the MN State Fair this year. This is the 15th year that a sculpture will be located at the DNR's State Fair Building.
Rabi will therefore be participating in the 17th Annual Great Mississippi Riverboat Cleanup. It is during this cleanup that he will select the materials for this sculpture.
You're invited to join as well!

Participants will be disbursed along the river banks for the cleanup. Volunteers should remember to dress appropriately for hard work along the river in rain or shine. This cleanup is recommended for children over age 11 with proper adult supervision. Bags and gloves will be supplied. This is a free event with live music, lunch, and door prizes!
