On The Wings of Angels , 2007

by Littleton Alston

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Downtown; Omaha/Douglas Civic Center, corner of 19th & Farnam Streets.

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: Dedicated on September 11, 2007. Project made possible Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society, the City of Omaha, Mayor Mike Fahey and more than 300 individuals whose hands were cast in the creation of the sculpture. The molds were used to create cast bronze hands, of as many sizes and shapes as there were contributors. The bronze hands are integrated into the sixteen- foot tall stainless steel sculpture. The public sculpture is a tangible reminder of the 911 tragedy and the heartfelt response by the people of our region. The project budget, totaling approximately $55,000, was paid for by funds that were raised from corporate sponsors and private individuals. The expense total was kept to a minimum because of generous in-kind donations and substantial volunteer work by many individuals, including Alston, who donated nearly all of his services.
