(Kimballton) New Century Art Guild (NCAG) will break ground for Kimballton’s new Living Liberty memorial following the memorial service at the Kimballton Cemetery on Memorial Day. The memorial site is located west of the cemetery in Kimballton.
Everyone is invited to celebrate the coming of this one-of-a-kind monument. When completed, the project will feature life-size bronze figures and several murals that will take visitors deep into battle scenes from America’s past conflicts and will honor all branches of U.S. Armed Services.
The actual groundbreaking is scheduled for 12:00 rain or shine. James O’Keefe, Commander U.S. Navy (Ret.) will preside over the event. Sketches of this unique work of art will be available to view. The lead sculptor, Troy Muller, art director of NCAG will be there. A video of other NCAG projects will be shown at their gallery on Kimballton’s Main Street after the event. All are invited to stop in to become familiar with the new art gallery in Kimballton. This event will also be an opportunity to become a member of NCAG in order to keep up with the progress of the projects throughout the coming years.
