THE CENTRAL GEORGIA MOUNTED COLOR GUARD PRESENTED THE COLORS

AND MILITARY FLAGS FOR THIS EVENT.

     Following the events of 9/11, children’s painter and illustrator, Kathy Fincher, felt a responsibility to offer a message of hope to American families.  She was concerned the heart of our Constitutional principles of “Faith and Freedom” were under attack.

    Kathy created a painting, named it "The Dream Keepers", and it became part of President George W. Bush's private collection.   What better place to bring “The Dream Keepers” as a life-sized bronze, than one of the most patriotic cities in America and the hometown of the artist?

   Kathy Fincher teamed up with renowned sculptor, Martin Dawe owner of Cherrylion Studio in Atlanta, Georgia.  As the largest figurative patriotic public works of children in the world, the artist believes this will become a destination public art piece. The public unveiling on April 29 was attended by firefighters, EMTs, police officers, as well as Governor Nathan Deal  and Rodney Mims Cook, Jr., President of The National Monument Foundation.
