BUILDING ON A GIFT OF HISTORY NO OTHER MICHIGAN CITY CAN CLAIM!
Finalists Selected!
Finalists Chosen to Sculpt a Statue of Abraham Lincoln
Our Statue Committee, chaired by Director Gary Swain, is working hard to bring Abraham Lincoln back to Kalamazoo!  In January, 2022 we published a Call to Artists.  In response, we received over a dozen submissions from highly qualified sculptors.  After an initial review, five artists were selected for further consideration.  These five underwent further screening, which included careful examination of each artist’s references and works of public art.  Interviews with each of the artists followed and three finalists were selected.

We are pleased to announce that William Wolfe, Antonio Tobias Mendez, and Steven Whyte have been chosen as the three finalists. 

The next phase of the selection process calls for the three finalists to create a maquette of their proposed design for presentation to our full board of directors.  The board's selection of the winning design will then be presented to the City of Kalamazoo for final approval.  
Congratulations to all of our finalists!

We have released a new video, "Come to the Rescue."  The title is taken directly from Lincoln's Kalamazoo speech.  "Come to the rescue of this great principle of equality," he told the crowd gathered in Bronson Park.  Click on the link below to view the video and share it with family and friends.  We hope you enjoy it.  Kalamazoo's own Tim Brown donated his talents as narrator.
