Pittsburgh Artist James Simon:Fallen Police Memorial

Sadly, it has been a year since 3 Pittsburgh police officers were killed in a standoff in Stanton Heights. Funds are being raised for a memorial sculpture in Bloomfield. The artist commisioned to do the work is local sculptor James Simon. James has done a number of impressive public artworks in Pittsburgh (and one in Braddock).The ground was broken on April 4th, one year to the day since officer's deaths. The drawing for the memorial is beautiful. For an article and photo, go here:
