The City of Travelers Rest is seeking to commission a public artwork for Main Street located in the vicinity of the Gazebo along the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The work will be created to memorialize the revolutionary war heroine, Dicey Langston, who lived a long life, raised over 20 children and was buried in Travelers Rest. As a young girl of 15, she risked her life for a cause in which she believed, our nations’ freedom. Her contributions were key in saving many Patriot lives and her acts of heroism are well documented in historical record. https://www.americanrevolution.org/women/women26.php
Artists may submit letters of interest and qualifications, along with images or project renderings of past work. The call is open to all professional artists working in three dimensional medium. The City is open to innovative concepts for this memorial that may not include a figure cast in bronze statue.
