A new Protective Angel sculpture will be dedicated to the men and women of Hall County Fire Rescue during a ceremony Wednesday, August 2 at Hall County Fire Station 5 in partnership with Vision 2030 Public Art.
Protective Angel sculptures can be seen at several public safety facilities throughout Hall County. The sculptures serve as daily reminders that first responders are never alone and are followed by the community’s love and support as they serve on the frontlines to protect the community.
“On behalf of Hall County Rescue, it is an absolute honor to accept this sculpture,” Hall County Fire Chief Chris Armstrong said. “As servants to the community, it comes with sincere gratitude to have the love and support of our citizens, including that of the artist who has crafted this piece to pay tribute to those who serve so selflessly on a daily basis.”
The Protective Angel at Fire Station 5 was crafted by Gainesville artist Jane Taylor.
Taylor’s art piece was donated to the County as part of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce’s Vision 2030 Public Art initiative, and it was funded through a public art grant from the North Georgia Community Foundation and an anonymous donation facilitated by the Vision 2030 Public Art Committee.
Light refreshments will be provided at the brief dedication ceremony, which will begin at 10:30 a.m. at 4187 Falcon Pkwy, Flowery Branch, Georgia 30542.
