Sculpture tour—"Anhinga at Burwell School"

Harry McDaniel's "Anhinga," an abstract piece constructed of aluminum, sits at the Burwell School Historic Site, 319 N. Churton St., as part of Hillsborough Sculpture Tour 2011. Though the tour officially opens Saturday, April 16, McDaniel set up his piece a few weeks early. The tour runs through Sept. 30, and includes five other sculptures within walking distance of downtown Hillsborough.
McDaniel has been sculpting for more than 30 years, beginning with a few teenage dabbles in wood. He has since moved to outdoor art, preferring the more natural setting as opposed to a gallery.
For more information on "Anhinga," McDaniel and the art tour, see the Wednesday, April 13, edition of the News of Orange.


  1. Can anyone tell us if this sculpture is going to be permanent at the Burwell School site? It seems to be popular opinion that it just doesn't fit in with the look and feel of small town Hillsborough. And it's placement on a historic site??? Can anyone shed some light on this?

  2. All six sculptures will remain until Sept. 30, when the sculpture tour ends, as mentioned in the first story in The News of Orange ( For more information on the sculptures and updates on the tour, follow the series in the paper.
