The Fuquay-Varina Garden Club donated a piece of artwork, a sculpture, that is locate by the front entrance to the Fuquay-Varina Police Department.
A little background about the sculpture:
One of the Fuquay-Varina Garden Club's objectives is “beautification”. As a 501-c non-profit organization, they pondered what gift they could give our fast-growing community. They considered contributing a garden although they noted that the ongoing upkeep on growing plants may not be much of a “gift” in the long run. A committee was formed to search for a type of art sculpture they could purchase. They found an intriguing steel sculpture by world-renowned sculptor Sam Spiczka. The steel seems to invoke the industry and railroad that supported this community as it began. The organic flow and open design remind us that we have fluidity and openness, as well as the strength to face our future.
This art piece is titled “The Guardian” and they are thrilled that the Fuquay Varina Police Department accepted this sculpture and installed it by the entrance to our new building.
Stop by to see the sculpture at the FVPD located at 401 Old Honeycutt Rd., Fuquay-Varina.
