response to the week of the tragedy in New York and Washington D.C. where
the airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center,the Pentagon, and into
the countryside in Pennsylvania; several sculptors and artists in Sebastopol
were moved to join together to start a work of peace. We met in the Lumber
Yard and began carving and placing pieces of limestone, colored glass, photos,
slabs of wood and assorted objects together. We talked together and the
process was good for us. We will continue the work during Sculpture Jam
2001, and we invite others to add to the piece of work.
The city of Sebastopol will install the Peace Sculpture permanently in
the city plaza, across from the Lumber yard. We will be preparing and
moving the sculpture Friday, January 25 (3:30 pm pallatize the piece)
and Sunday, 27th (begin 7:30 am, move).
