Mission Statement

The purpose of this project is to give a public sculpture to a community of people. This can only be accomplished with the participation of many individuals making monetary or in-kind contributions. Each of these small gifts will drive us further toward success in seeing this sculpture become a reality and an important part of the cultural legacy of Clinton and Eastern Iowa."


The original sculpture of "The Necessity of Resistance" is an image of a man engaged in a struggle against both external and internal forces. It will be permanently displayed In De Witt Park in the City of Clinton ,IA. The figure, which will be carved in white marble (4' x 4' x 6' 0"), is to be mounted on a low, wide gray poured concrete base (16' x 12' x 1') with a reflective polished black granite monolithic wall (1' x 8' x 10') facing the protagonist. The opposite side of the monolith will be the story of the hero myth in symbolic form with a culminating message of hope. An important concept of this sculpture is to allow viewers the chance to see in the granite their own reflection side by side with the protagonist's and contemplate daunting tasks to both themselves and their community.
