Effingham’s newest piece in the “Sculpture on the Avenues” walking tour has been unveiled. The sculpture, “Best Friends,” is part of the Randolph Rose collection. Since 1972, the Randolph Rose Collection has grown from a small family business to one of the largest design resources, with a passion for creating and designing the highest quality bronze sculptures.“Best Friends” joins another bronze sculpture,“Balancing Boy & Joy” on the City Hall lawn.
The “Sculpture on the Avenues” program was implemented 17 years ago by then Mayor Bob Utz and the Effingham Community Committee for the Arts. The self guided walking tour that begins at City Hall now has just under 30 sculptures in the downtown area as part of the program.
