A man puts a unique art scuplture on display in Perry

As you drive through the city of Perry, you'll have to get up close to see what the Autumn Trotter really has to offer.

Donny Wright drives a semi full time, but when he's off, he shows his artistic side.

"I like to create something beautiful that people enjoy looking a,t and it has intriguing pieces in it," says Wright.

Larry Hunt, a member of the Perry Art Center's advisory board, says they displayed it in front of the city's art center.

"You wouldn't believe the number of people that stop and park and come and get out of their car to come look at it close to see what it's made of," says Hunt.

He says it's the first public art displayed in the city and they hope to continue adding more pieces. The eyes are made out of door knobs, and Wright points out the fiddle. There's even one piece from an old lawn mower.

He's made smaller decorative pieces before, but says he enjoys the challenge sculptures like the Autumn Trotter brings.

He starts with a framework and then welds scrap metal he finds at scrap yards or yard sales to make the animal's body.
