Description

This work, titled “Together We Live, Together We Rise,” is exemplary of community interconnectedness. The project, commissioned by the DCCAH and designed by artist Jerome Meadows in 2006, is comprised of four carved limestone figures. Two depict a mother and a father supporting a child on their shoulders, and the other two depict community caretakers embellished with photo-etched plates of prominent community leaders. All the figures have mosaic tile insets and glazed ceramic faces by David Driskell.

In addition, there are 21 custom made ceramic tile units set into colored concrete walkway. Located in the 16th Street Heights neighborhood, this work truly highlights the interwoven lives of this supportive and tight knit community.
