Fish Gone Wild to be 'released' next week in Spicer


SPICER -- Lola. Phish-Styx. Akita. Two-faced Impostor. Wild Willy Walleye.

These are some of the names local artists have given to the fish they've created for Spicer's summer beautification project called Fish Gone Wild.

Kept under wraps since they received their simple 3-foot-long wooden cut-out of a fish early this spring, the artists will unveil their final works of art Thursday during a public reception to "release" the fish into the community.
