Clay Enoch's UNITED Commemorates Historic Moment
Clay Enoch's UNITED Commemorates Historic Moment

Clay [Enoch] states about the sculpture... "I wanted to try to shift the focus from the historical to the contemporary. There has been so much progress made. I wanted to create something that showed the strides that have been made — something hopeful and uplifting."

Noted sculptor Clay Enoch (ECS 1991) was on hand for the installation of his work United, a 10-foot bronze that commemorates the 60th Anniversary of the integration of Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas.

According to the JK DESIGNS Fine Art Consulting website: "Clay states about the sculpture... 'I wanted to try to shift the focus from the historical to the contemporary. There has been so much progress made. I wanted to create something that showed the strides that have been made — something hopeful and uplifting.'

"The design features allegorical figures with raised arms working to interlock their respective rings in the effort to be "UNITED". Incomplete rings indicate that there is still progress to be made. A secondary narrative built on the surface of each figure demonstrates that both sides have a foundation of ideals spanning generations that must be transformed into building blocks toward something greater."
