80th Anniversary Commemorative Sculpture

Atlanta Dogwood Festival Bronze Sculpture

In recognition of its 80th anniversary, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival has commissioned an interactive bronze sculpture that will welcome guests to Piedmont Park for many decades to come. The sculpture, shaped as a giant dogwood limb with massive blooms, will also serve as a bench for park visitors.  

“We worked closely with Cherrylion Studios to create a beautiful piece of art that fit the feel, design and beauty of Piedmont Park while reminding people throughout the year of the festival’s commitment to bringing the finest art to the City each springtime,” said festival executive director Brian Hill.

The Atlanta Dogwood Festival has worked with the Piedmont Park Conservancy and the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation to gain approval for the sculpture, which will be located near the Charles Allen entrance of the park. As the third-oldest fine arts festival in the country and the oldest event in Atlanta, Hill and festival board members saw the 80th anniversary as a special year and looked for a way to mark the milestone. Since Walter Rich’s intention when founding the festival in 1936 was to highlight the blooming of the dogwood trees, the design offers a fitting tribute.

The Atlanta Dogwood Festival is currently running a capital campaign and seeking support from members of the residential and business communities to generate a fund for the sculpture’s installation and maintenance. Be a part of history by making a tax deductible donation to the commemorative sculpture fund today. The Atlanta Dogwood Festival is a registered 501(c)3 organization.

#artistspotlight Edwin C Lester was born in Philadelphia, PA. He is a self-taught artist who brings a very sophisticated and technically advanced style of realism to his figurative and atmospheric paintings. His work centers on themes that are important and personal to him. The narrative approach allows the artist to convey an emotion, a moment in time as if reading without the turning of pages. For the artist, art and life are one, and life and his belief in the teachings of the Bible should leave no canvas unpainted, for the stories are many.

Edwin Lester is an award-winning artist at major art events, fairs, and shows. His work is currently collected and sought after worldwide.
