Final approval was made by the Lyons Arts Committee for the Lavern Johnson Memorial monument. This is a life-size sculpture of a woman who dedicated much of her life to preserving and improving the town of Lyons, Colorado. Her achievements are too numerous to mention here, but her legacy lives on in the many lives she touched and inspired in this town. I was so honored to create this monument that will serve as a reminder of her unwavering dedication. Her son Jerry stands to my left in this photo. It is scheduled for installation in Lyons July 2024.
