Earlier in December, Clay Enoch’s COMMUNITY sculpture was dedicated in Hillcrest at the Allsopp Promenade along Kavanaugh. It was placed there through a collaboration of the Hillcrest Residents Association, Hillcrest Merchants Association, and Sculpture at the River Market. CIty Directors Kathy Webb and Dean Kumpuris, along with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department, also were involved in the project.
The sculpture depicts a variety of people engaged in numerous activities. While each may be doing their own thing, they come together to represent a collective body. Among the activities represented are biking, playing basketball, studying, playing a cello, and family units spending time together.
Enoch, a member of the National Sculptors’ Guild, is a native of Memphis. His UNITED sculpture was dedicated on the front lawn of Central High School in September 2017, in conjunction with the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the integration of Little Rock Central HIgh School.
