The Bonney Lake Arts Commission will award its second annual “Medal of Arts” award to local sculptor Larry Anderson during the February 28, 2017 City Council Meeting.
The Bonney Lake Medal of Arts award recognizes an individual or organization in Bonney Lake who has made a contribution to and promoted the arts.
Anderson is best known in town for sculpting the City’s gateway statue of the boy and the ducks that is the centerpiece of the City’s welcome sign coming up the hill on SR410.
However, Anderson’s work is known nationally as well. Not long ago, President Obama chose to be photographed with one of Anderson’s works, “Springfield’s Lincoln”, a bronze life size sculpture of Abraham Lincoln, his wife and two of his sons. Another renowned Anderson piece is a Civil War sculpture “Coming Home” which rests at the Ohio Veteran’s Home in Sandusky, Ohio.
Over the years, Larry has produced more than 70 commissioned bronze sculptures, many of which are on display in Tacoma.
