SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Salina has installed a massive new stainless steel sculpture along a busy city corridor.

The sculpture was designed by Arizona-based artist Barbara Grygutis and is called "Dawn's Silver Lining." It's made up of six pieces of steel, each standing 20 feet tall and weighing 2,500 pounds.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/PH6fXC ) the sculpture was installed and hooked up to power Tuesday south of an expanding intersection. The sculpture will be illuminated at night.

City commissioners voted in 2010 to spend about $246,000 for the sculpture, then approved an additional $53,000 this year to build a foundation for the piece.

The sculpture was fabricated by Industrial Stainless International, based in New Mexico.

The artist plans to attend a dedication ceremony Thursday evening near the sculpture.
