Follow up: Lexington Diagnostic Center 2nd annual LEAP Competition installation complete.
In October 2006 Lexington Diagnostic Center hosted the 2nd annual Lexington Extraordinary Art Project. This competition was the idea of Dr. David Dubocq and is designed to encourage local UK student sculptors by having a juried competition with the winner getting a commission to erect a large statue on the property of the host.
The winner was Luke Achterberg whose winning entry is entitled ?Getting Back Up.? Mr. Achterberg is a MFA student in the University of Kentucky School of Fine Arts and studies under Professor Garry Bibbs. The sculpture is 17 feet tall and was finished and erected in the Spring of 2008 in front of Lexington Diagnostic Center. Second place was awarded to James Kerr, Third place went to Michael Martinez and Patrick White received the Lexington Diagnostic Center Staff Pick award.
