Requiem

 

continued

"We found [it] by chance while biking as a family," write Michele, Todd, Noah, Levi, and Emmet Forbes. When Bob DeBona's son Matthew suggested checking UMMA's back wall, the family took a detour on their way to the Fourth of July parade to confirm his hypothesis. "His brother Jack," writes Bob, "thought the sculpture looked like tear drops."

The bronze sculpture by Erwin Binder is typically interpreted as an eternal flame. It "serves as a token of remembrance and commemoration to members of the armed forces," Christine Alexander writes, quoting the UMMA catalog.

Nine entrants correctly identified Requiem; two more recognized the sculpture as a war memorial but missed the location. Amy Thomas won our drawing and will take her $25 prize to Grizzly Peak.
