Brief Description

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is seeking an artist or artist team to create wall-mounted high relief sculptures for the Gold Star Families Memorial and Park, Canine and Equine Plaza addition. The subjects are: 1. Horse, life size or slightly larger, standing on the ground, with the horse’s head facing out. The horse is accompanied by its patrol officer partner, standing and holding the reins of the horse. 2. Two dogs, life size or slightly larger, mounted and arranged on the wall in a dynamic grouping. The dogs may be “natural” or may be uniformed in their working equipment, or perhaps one of each. Holding leashes to one or both dogs should be their police officer handler.
