In 1999, Chesterfield Arts and local sculptor Don Wiegand dedicated Maura, a life-size bronze sculpture of a running girl, to the City of Chesterfield in honor of the founding of the city. To mark this special event, Don created a unique red granite base that is an exact outline of her shadow at the time the sculpture was unveiled. Each year, on June 26 at 10:00 am Maura‘s shadow slowly moves into position for perfect alignment with her granite base.
