The sculpture is not very big. It measures 12 and a quarter inches by 11 and a half by 11 and a half. It’s an intertwined press of people around a structure, brown arms, legs and heads – frantically climbing on top of each other to get to the top – as if their lives depended on it.
It’s the awarded sculpture titled, “Hope for Tomorrow,” and was created by the sculptor and arts activist, Frank J. Brown.
