The Craven Arts Council & Gallery announced that the Unity Project will be installed and unveiled on Feb. 5 at 1:30 p.m. at Broad Street Christian Church. This event will be free and open to the public. Guests should wear masks and practice social distancing.
The sculpture entitled “Unity” is a 12-foot-tall papier-mâché sculpture that was created by and painted by children in Craven County. The representation of two hands represents the unity and strength of our community when working together, and draws from the imagery of the local “Unity” mural on Broad Street.
The Craven Arts Council thanks Shop Class and Broad Street Christian Church for use of their facilities; the Sun Journal for providing the paper; Trawick Stubbs, Jr., Chris and Judy McCrudden, and Helmut and Carmen Weisser for donating to the Craven Arts Council & Gallery for this project; and the community without which this sculpture would not have been completed.
