It Must Be a Good Book

Gregory Mendez - Fort Wayne, Indiana

Adams Public Library System
Location: Adams Public Library System, NW corner of 3rd & Jefferson

Metal figures of a young girl and boy atop an oversized concrete book. The girl is reading a book that has her attention to the point of acting it out. Up on her tip toes she swings her arms displaying her excitement about the story. It looks like she has forgotten about her beloved stuffed bunny she always keeps with her. The boy is seated facing the girl and listens attentively to the story. At certain angles the viewer can see through the figures, but from a distance the figures seem solid. A closer look will reveal that the figures are composed of hundreds of individual steel pieces --flat bars and round stocks that have been cut, bent, welded, and ground to refine a specific area. The figures are painted to retain their metallic qualities using silvers with hints of coppers and bronzes. The girl's dress is brightly colored pink, and the boy’s hat has a hint of blue. The sculpture was commissioned by the Adams Public Library System in memory of Dianne Linn, longtime library patron, former staff member, and friend of the Library. From early stages in design through installation this sculpture took just over three months to complete. The concrete base constructed in the form of a book was donated by the Hitchcock Concrete Company.

St. Mary of the Assumption

Edward Sculte, architect -

St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church
Location: St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church

Architectural sculpture on the church facade includes a full-length figure of Mary, and two relief panels. Mary is placed above church entrance canopy, depicted as an ascending figure, hands clasped in prayer. She wears a head covering, layered garments and sandals. A round window forms a halo around her head. Beneath the entrance canopy are two relief panels. The right panel depicts the Annunciation. A kneeling angel, in proper right profile, faces Mary who is standing. There is a lily stem in the upper right corner of the panel and a dove in the upper left corner. The left relief panel may depict the Magnificat, where Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, meets Mary. Both figures extend their hands to each other in greeting. In the upper right corner of the left relief is a lamb. In the lower left corner is a Chi-rho monogram. / Edward Sculte, architect; Fagan Stone Company, fabricator.
