Story: Reflections is one of the sculptures included in the Gratitude Project. The goal of the reflections project was to foster and encourage volunteerism by honoring it, which would, in turn, encourage community engagement and strengthen the entire community. Volunteers are vitally important to the development and support of a strong community core, and the ability to get things done. Al Patten, Project Manager explained, “This project began as a way to honor Max and Doris Hunt – longtime residents and tireless supporters and contributors to our community. We chose to bestow that honor with public art – a sculpture designed by Guy Bellaver to meet the Hunt family's vision of a piece that wasn't a statue of their parents, but rather a work of art that captured their spirit. Over time our committee realized that Max and Doris were, in essence, exemplars of volunteerism – the engine that drives the best of communities. And the result of many discussions about this commemorative idea with the River Corridor Foundation, the Arts Council, and the City, is Volunteer Plaza.”
