Art shown in this Issue:

The American Molder is an “Occupational Monument” designed to be a tribute to the craftsmen and laborers of the Albion community.  It was designed by sculptor Ed Chesney.   He was able to portray a non-racial appearance of the face on the Molder, in order to honor hard working people of all races that were employed by the iron companies.  The sculpture is located across the street from the Albion Post Office at the intersection of Michigan Ave. and Superior St.  A quote by James Russell Lowell
 on the plaque reads: “No man is born into the world whose work is not born with him. There is always work, and tools to work with, for those who will, and blessed are the thorny hands of toil.”


Holland Park Transformation Project

The Speaker at the recent MLK Convocation at the Bohm Theatre was Ruth Holland Scott. Holland Park is named after her father. This was the site of the former West Ward School, that was a segregated school in Albion.

Now, a group of dedicated people have made great strides in getting this park transformed. Please visit the Holland Park Transformation facebook page, "like" the page, and watch for more information on how you can help.

Read an article by Wes Dick on the transformation project.
