NEW BREMEN — New Bremen got an updated look on Tuesday as some sculptures were installed in the village.

Sculptor Bret Price was in the area and installed pieces that he had created.

Price, a native of Orange County, California, had a busy day in New Bremen, speaking at the New Bremen New Knoxville Rotary Club meeting in the morning and then installing the sculptures in the parks throughout the day.

Two of his sculptures went up in Komminsk Legacy Park and another in BremenFest Park.

The sculptures were part of the late Dianne Komminsk’s estate, and had been donated to the village.

New Bremen Schools had one installed in the front earlier this year.

Price and his wife became good friends with Komminsk and her family over the years, with the two initially meeting in 2001.

“We became great friends. Our interaction with Dianne was one of the great thrills for everyone in my family,” Price told Rotarians on Tuesday. “Dianne redefined by artistic career.”
