I have recently been looking at the work of George Lopez.  The honesty and economy of his forms make his sculptures memorable and powerful.  Building Bridges: Constructing a Movement (pictured above), was inspired by the Women's March and the narrative work of carvers like Lopez.  The piece was first exhibited at Studio Place Arts in Barre, VT in a show called Under Construction.  Indiana State University recently acquired this piece for their permanent collection.
