Choosing the Honorees
Organizations representing marginalized populations in Siouxland, both past and present, be it African Americans, Hispanics/Latino Americans, Jewish Americans, Native/Indigenous Americans, Asian Americans, Elderly, Women, Children, the Homeless, Veterans, Disabled Americans, Victims of Domestic Violence, and Those Recovering from Addictions/Substance Abuse, selected an individual who has been a champion for their group and has made a significant difference in the lives of Siouxlanders.
How will they be honored?
A bronze bust will be sculpted of the honorees by Siouxland native, Mark Avery, an accomplished sculptor. The busts will be placed on pedestals along with a plaque that will explain their role as a champion for the marginalized group and placed in a sculpture park setting. Pulling the art park together will be a large sculpted arc displaying the inspirational sculpture park theme:“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Martin Luther King Jr.
