Remembrance, Faith, and Fancy: Outdoor Public Sculpture in Indiana ; By Glory-June Greiff; 2005; Hardcover; 350 pp; 8.5x11; illustrated; ISBN 0871951800; Item IHS033

In the early 1850s Henry Cross, a stone carver, fashioned three road-marker heads in Brown County, Indiana. The markers, one of which survives today on maps as Stone Head, were the first outdoor public sculptures in the Hoosier State. Through the years, counties throughout the state have continued to add to Cross’s legacy, dotting the landscape with sculptures both realistic and fanciful. Remembrance, Faith, and Fancy: Outdoor Public Sculpture in Indiana examines the more than 1,500 pieces of outdoor sculpture through such broad categories as commemorative, religious, aesthetic, whimsical, and abstract/contemporary.
