The City of Clarksville, Tennessee


The City of Clarksville, Tennessee called for an iconic symbol that speaks to the connection between Clarksville and its neighboring Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and recognizes the men and women who serve this country. The site is unique in that it borders two states with a unified identity shaped by Fort Campbell Army installation, home of the 101st Airborne Division.


MGA's striking sculpture aims to define that interstate connection with a bold, stainless steel eagle caught in action, inspired by the local history and tradition of Fort Campbell. Tip of the Spear is a physical manifestation of the literal and symbolic strength of an eagle that pays tribute to the hard work and sacrifice of the soldiers stationed at Fort Campbell.
