Over the summer, residents of and visitors to Rapid City had the opportunity to meet a world class sculptor and view his work at Main Street Square. But as with any artist, there’s a real person behind the images they create – a person who’s often not visible to the public.

Today we visit with sculptor Masayuki  Nagase to learn about the man behind the art.

It’s a quiet Saturday morning in September as I sit beside Masayuki Nagase…about to share in a daily ritual for the Japanese artist.

"What are we about to have here? " I ask.
