These sculptures were all the result of public art commissions by the city of Joliet, Illinois. Their subject matter was determined by consulting various partners: city planners, teachers, historians, and neighborhood associations. Sites and subject matter were chosen in order to give the maximum benefit and visibility to a maximum number of people. Many of the sculptures are placed near schools in order to help children to learn about the arts and to be used as tools by the teachers. In all of the sculptures on the theme of education, the goal is to try to help children realize that we believe in them as the future of humanity, and consider their potential to be unlimited. The historical sculptures honor distinguished citizens who came before us and, through their exemplary accomplishments, enriched our lives.
