Reading Girl

Indiana Limestone, earthwork. Art for the Park commission, City of Charles City, Iowa.

A little girl, reading a book, illustrates the importance of this skill in education.
The plants of the berm(evergreen Vinca minor) which creates her skirt represent the ideas that become a part of us when we read. The Vinca minor is freshly planted in this photo and will grow 4”-6” high, filling the area beneath the book without overwhelming the sculpture.
