KOREAN WAR MEMORIAL (2000)

Somerville, MA

Behind the entrance stone, its top carved with the shape of the current border between North and South Korea a 53 foot diameter semicircle of quotes from local Veterans chronologically describes the War’s history. The quotes are visually woven with the names of local fatalities, and with bronze casts of soldier’s everyday equipment (helmet, shovel, ration cans, web belt). Quotations relating the Veteran experience during the conflict complete the memorial on the inner side of the entrance wall. Granite, bronze. Budget: $110,000. Commissioned by City of Somerville, MA.
