From Elise (Oxford) on 10/22/2012
          My favorite public sculpture in Ohio was made by my husband, Jim McWilliams, for the Oxford Community Park during Oxford's bicentennial celebration a few years ago. It is my favorite sculpture because I understood for the first time what goes into the content, design and giving a large scale sculpture its final form. It created a much larger picture for me to witness this firsthand, to see the technical approaches, the functionality and the engineering of the manifestation of the design into form.

We are both art teachers and artists, and it is always a complex dynamic to witness an idea coming into fruition, but this was such a major undertaking that I felt grateful to just be a part of the process.

Jim teaches art at Talawanda High School in Oxford, and I teach art at Hollingsworth East Elementary School in Eaton.
