Foy, the creative mind behind the project, is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Louisiana Monroe, and will oversee all aspects of the project. Foy, as a representative of ULM, has partnered with the City of West Monroe, Downtown Arts Alliance, and MWMCVB for 2 grants that will help reduce the cost of the sculptures for future sponsors of each Heron. Along with the primary partners, supporting organizations include the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, Downtown West Monroe Revitalization Group, West Monroe – West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce, and Monroe Chamber of Commerce.
Painting and production of the sculptures is scheduled during the spring of 2019 with a reveal of all the herons planned in June 2019.
