Description

In 2003, local artist Marcia Billig was commissioned by the DCCAH to create a sculpture at North Lincoln Park. This sculpture, “Balance,” depicts an adolescent girl lifting and balancing a younger boy high in the air in a moment of triumph. This reflects the North Lincoln Park neighborhood, which is also striving, growing, and working together to find a balance in the needs of its community. According to Billig, “balance, as demonstrated by these two children in the sculpture, calls for faith and confidence in one another.” As the sculpture is located across the street from Maury Elementary, she hopes it will convey a positive message to the neighborhood’s youth and inspire them to depend on openness and to help those around them.
