Arc of Peace is 5.5 ft tall, 3 ft wide and 2 ft deep. The beautifully landscaped location is a park in the City of Edmond OK. The place that includes the sculpture is approximately 10 x 10 ft.
Joe and Elizabeth Wanner wanted to donate a sculpture to be placed at Hafer Park in Edmond where many families spend their time. The selected "Arc of Peace" because it appealed to children and has a spiritual aspect as well.
The city of Edmond has creative art in public places program that brings together business people, citizens artists, and the city to beautify the city with sculpture. Business and citizens can select or commission sculpture to be publicly placed and the city will share 50% of the cost.
I think the collaboration that the City of Edmond has with the citizens to place artwork in the town is a pretty amazing thing. I am so proud to be a part of it!

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
