Military Tribute Public Art Dedication
November 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm
The public is invited to join us on Monday, November 11, Veterans Day, as we unveil a monument that stands as a tribute to the men and women who have served our nation. Designed by regional artist Marty Haythorn, this public art project measures more than 11 feet high and six feet in diameter, and includes impressive mosaic work depicting the military experiences in both war and peacetime with historical images fired on ceramic tiles. Recognition of the sacrifices of local veterans who have served our nation has been the focus of the monument, while also paying tribute to the core military values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and commitment. Mayor John Gayle, Parks & Recreation Authority Director George Page, and other community members will cut the ribbon on this newest piece of public art in the city, at 1 p.m.
