Crossing Boundaries

A brief history of “Solidarity” (acrylics on wood, in a painted redwood frame) featured in CROSSING BOUNDARIES, the politically themed art exhibit at Chroma Gallery. I was inspired by Vito Paulekis’s sculpture, commissioned by Steve Allen for the first Tonight Show. In turn, it was inspired by an emblem for the first fire department on this continent which was formed in 1753 by Ben Franklin and others.
