Sheffield unveils its sculpture Sunday, Sept 23...Join us there!! :: Sun, September, 16, 2012 :: posted by Administrator

History will be made in Alabama on September 23, and the City of Sheffield invites you to join in this wonderful celebration. An 18-foot tall semi-abstract Singing River Sculpture honoring Sheffield's legendary music heritage will be unveiled at Love Plaza in downtown Sheffield at 2:00 PM on September 23. Local sculptor Audwin McGee designed and crafted this dramatic work of civic art out of recycled aluminum generously donated by Wise Alloys of Muscle Shoals.The city is immensely proud that Sheffield is the first of the four largest Shoals cities to unveil its tribute to the sound that transformed popular music world-wide in the 50's, 60's and 70's: the renowned Muscle Shoals sound. That legacy continues today with many new local bands forging their own unique sounds for new generations. In the coming years, similar sized Singing River Sculptures will arise in its sister cities, followed by a grouping of even larger music-related sculptures in a Sculpture Garden overlooking our Singing River, the Tennessee.Sheffield's Singing River Sculpture will quickly become an iconic image of the city, and a lasting reminder to visitors and its citizens of the creative juices that flowed from Sheffield to change popular music forever. The sculpture will be erected in the very heart of downtown, drawing people from everywhere and helping stimulate activities and businesses there. Sheffield envisions the sculpture as a wonderful gathering place for entertainment and an anchor for its efforts for a lively downtown entertainment district.So join the fine people of Sheffield for this event, in many ways signifying new life to this great and historic city. We hope to see you at Love Plaza on Sunday afternoon, September 23, 2012. Bring your family and friends.
