Community Art Legacy: Ten Sculptures in Ten Years

The Community Art legacy [CAL] was formed in 2004 by a group of Oregon citizens with the purpose of installing “ten sculptures in ten yers” in the Oregon area. It was formed under the initiative of Jeff Adams, sculptor and foundry operator of inBronze Foundry in Mt. Morris. Their guiding motivation was expressed by sculptor Lorado Taft when he said, “The hometown is the dearest place on earth. Why not make is more beautiful”.
