Congratulations to our KCAG president Steve McCall for completion and installation of his full-sized bronze sculpture of an eagle titled "Guardian of Freedom".  The eagle will be unveiled and dedicated at a celebration of Veterans Day at the Ken Caryl Veterans Memorial on Saturday, November 12, at 11am. This has been a huge project for Steve with lots of nail-biting, but the results are well worth the effort.  The eagle is an excellent example local art organizations promoting art in their community.
