SARTELL, Minn. (AP) — The Verso paper mill was a key part of Sartell before it was put out of commission by a 2012 fire. And now, a local artist and Sartell High School teacher have found a way to keep pieces of it in the community.
The pair is leading a project that will repurpose pieces of building into sculptures — which will also serve as bike racks around town.
The St. Cloud Times reports (http://on.sctimes.com/1hWUqbR ) that artist Heidi Jeub and Sartell High School technology education teacher Joe Schulte plan to start sculpting this summer.
The mill opened in 1905, two years before Sartell became a city. Jeub says the mill has always seemed sort of mythical. She says this is an interesting way to let people see inside the building.
