24. Climbing Rose - High Aspirations
Artist: Darlene Jansen
Benefactor: The Peed Family
Location: 230 N 7th St.
My inspiration for Climbing Rose - High Aspirations reflects the encouragement Campus Life gives to teenagers for climbing to their highest achievements. The rose in full bloom reflects the growth in fulfillment of their accomplishments and the buds represent the dreams of their aspirations. Colors depicted within the serving hands ~ the blue represents “sky is the limit,” the yellow represents warm mentoring,” and the green represents “help in building a solid foundation for life.” Included in the greenery is the acknowledgment of Celebrating 50 years!
DESIGN NOTE: The "large rose" would be an added three-dimensional element within the hands incorporating the same materials utilized in the sculpture’s manufacturing process.
