A new Sculpture for Parker,Colorado
In June 2010, artist Adam Schultz was commissioned to produce an innovative public art sculpture for the Town of Parker’s new Police Station. Schultz’s creation, “Freedom through Safety,” was dedicated on Jan. 19, 2011.
The powerful sculpture features a life-sized bronze eagle in flight, held aloft 14 feet in the air on two vertical stainless steel pillars. One pillar represents safety and the other symbolizes strength. The base of the sculpture includes a “circle of hands” — tiles pressed with hand prints of local community members from young children to senior citizens, metaphorically representing the support and involvement of the community.
