Parental Love Unveiling
The Public Arts Commission and Oakland Cemetery are excited to announce the unveiling of our newest Public Art Sculpture, Parental Love. Attend the public unveiling during Historic Hutchinson’s Living Cemetery Tour this September, 24th. The sculpture will be unveiled before the start of the tour. This unveiling is free and open to the public.
In the fall of 2017, the Cemetery Infant Sculpture will be unveiled inside the Oakland Cemetery near the dedicated Baby and Infant Lot. The memorial project will honor those lost and comfort those remembering their loved ones.
Local artist Deb Zeller met with John Olson and Public Art Commission members to discuss the importance of adding this memorial to Oakland; Hope.
Funding for this special sculpture is provided by a generous SMAC grant, The Oakland Cemetery, The Public Arts Commission, and donations and pledges of local individuals. If you would like to support the funding of this artwork, please connect with Public Works Manager, John Olson.
The Hutchinson Public Arts Commission collaborated with Hutchinson Public Works, Hutchinson Public Works, Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, and the Oakland Cemetery in bringing plans of this sculpture into fruition.
