Sculpture Donation for Childers
Exciting news from the Downtown Monroe Places to Play Campaign! A sculpture has been donated for Childer’s Park. The sculpture is a rebar tree designed for a vine to intertwine and create visual interest and shade. See the awesome story from artist, Ashley Stewart, below:
My name is Ashley Stewart. I graduated from Loganville High School. After I graduated from I attended Gwinnett Technical College and received my degree in welding. My final project for my fabrication class was to make an on-campus rebar tree that would provide shade and beauty on the campus. Unfortunately, the school could not provide the funds to install my project.
My inspiration behind the tree is accredited to Mrs. Gail Zorn who gave me the idea of making a beautiful sculpture that would be appreciated for it’s beauty and provide shade on campus. The project was challenging, given the height and structure requirements required to build it. I’m glad it is going to be installed where I grew up. My family is from Monroe, so it is very special to me that the city of Monroe is installing my sculpture and allowing me to have an imprint on the future and to help show the importance of welding for the community. I believe that the sculpture will bring happiness to the surrounding community and provide inspiration for younger generations to realize they can do and accomplish anything they want to in life.
