Behind the Project!

The Celebrating Community Sculpture Park Project is being developed through a partnership with the NAACP and the Celebrating Community Foundation: a non-profit 510(c)(3) (tax-exempt organization), made up of a diverse group of Siouxland Citizens who see this project as a way to honor those marginalized in our community and the collective quest for justice and equal opportunity that is a rich and important part of our heritage.

Thank you to all who serve on our committee’s and to those consulting on the project.  Without these volunteers our Sculpture Park Project would not be possible.
