South Dakota top court to hear Costner art appeal
South Dakota Supreme Court to hear appeal of Kevin Costner sculpture ruling
By The Associated Press

VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) ' The South Dakota Supreme Court will hear an appeal of a ruling that actor Kevin Costner did not breach a contract with an artist whom he commissioned to produce a bronze sculpture of bison and American Indians.

Oral arguments are set for Monday.

The Hollywood superstar paid Peggy Detmers $300,000 to make the sculpture in the 1990s for a resort he planned in South Dakota's Black Hills. The resort was never built but he instead placed the sculpture at his Tatanka attraction near Deadwood.

A judge ruled last summer that this alternative placement did not constitute a breach of contract.

Detmers said she gave Costner a price break because she anticipated selling more artwork at the resort.

Costner filmed much of his Academy-Award-winning movie "Dances with Wolves" in South Dakota.
