    Union bricklayer carves a legacy - By Michael Kuchta, St. Paul Union Advocate via Workday Minnesota
    Dust billows. Power tools screech. More than a dozen artists chip and grind away, centimeter by centimeter, at massive blocks of stone outside St. Paul College. In the middle of it all, union bricklayer Mark Wickstrom sees the antiquity and, he hopes, the renaissance of his craft.

    Wickstrom, apprenticeship coordinator for Bricklayers Local 1, is also an internationally recognized master stone-cutter. That's how he became one of the planners for the 'Minnesota Rocks' International Stone Carving Symposium, which Public Art Saint Paul is hosting through June 30.
