The Sculpture

A sculpture designed and built by students of School District #55 stands on the grounds of the Library. Linda Revis, Art teacher, was in charge of the project and was instrumental in getting the work placed here so that it would be in a prominent place in the county. The artist-in-residence who helped the students is Bob Doster, internationally acclaimed artist and sculptor. He works from the Backstreet Studio in Lancaster, SC. A grant allowed the school district to retain him to teach the students and to help design the sculpture. The design of the sculpture has no specific meaning or representation. Students at E.B. Morse Elementary School submitted sections of the design and Mr. Doster helped coordinate these into the final structure. After the design was completed, welding students at Laurens District #55 High School, under the direction of their teacher Tony Wilson, built the sculpture. The metal for the project was donated by Consolidated Fabricators of Clinton, SC.
