When a development was built five miles north of Wickenburg — a small Arizona city northwest of Phoenix that was once a “rough and ready” western frontier town that still spotlights Old West scenes and dress and art and refers to its location as “out Wickenburg Way” — a traffic “roundabout” was added in 2015 in the highway that runs past it. Residents felt it needed some public art, so this set of cowboy spurs —eight feet tall at one point — were added. Kelly Hill and his wife, Jennifer, designed the sculpture, each spur of which weighs 4,300 pounds. Original image from Carol M. Highsmith’s America, Library of Congress collection.
