Placed outside of Rockford Community Federal Credit Union, at 3 N. Monroe St., are five Cedar Sapiens. They were created by Georgia Donovan, a member at the credit union.

Donovan entered the Cedar Sapiens in the Art Prize 2009 contest. Her entry placed in the top 50 out of 1,218 entries. Her artwork, titled “Cedar Sapiens—Dance of the Tree People,” was placed at The B.O.B.

“Now they’ve planted their roots in Rockford,” said Cassandra Chartier, a staff member at the credit union. The Cedar Sapiens were moved to Rockford at the end of October.

“Rockford is all about uniqueness and we wanted to get people talking around town,” said Josh Fortuna, another staff member.

The Cedar Sapiens will keep the public up to date on the upcoming events at the credit union. “We love them. They’re great conversation starters,”

said Chartier.

One of the Cedar Sapiens, “Pat,” was dressed as a witch for Halloween. Currently she is dressed as a Rockford Ram cheerleader while the marquee sign reads, “Go Rams!” Rockford Community Federal Credit Union will take ideas from the public on how to dress the Cedar Sapiens. The credit union can be contacted through their website, rcfcumember.com, by phone at (616) 866-8570, or one can stop by.
