New Termesphere Installed and Dedicated in Downtown Spearfish

On July 30, a Termesphere created by Spearfish artist Dick Termes was installed on the clocktower at the corner of Hudson and Main Streets in Spearfish, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The 3-foot-diameter Termesphere features local landscapes.

A gear system for the Termesphere turns the orb around for viewers to get a better glance at all of its artwork. The mechanism was created by Jared Capp.
