Metal relief sculpture
6’h x 11’w x 4”d
Collection of the State of Utah
“HOME FLAG” was commissioned by the Utah Public Art Program for the Utah Department of Veterans Affairs, Military Veterans Home in Ogden, Utah. The composition is an abstraction of the American flag with the skyline silhouette of a small town with its rooftops and steeples. The wording in raised letters in the center of the design is from the American Civil War era songwriter and poet George Frederick Root. The passage is from a song lamenting a soldier’s time away from home that is as relevant to a soldier today as it was in the 1860s.
