This is an image on a bronze statue of Robert W. Woodruff designed by Nobuhito M. Matoba. The statue symbolizes Woodruff’s contributions to the Art Alliance, renamed Woodruff Arts Center. The statue stands in front of the Symphony Building and alongside a sculpture designed for the Olympics. The center commemorates a man who seemed to care a lot about how his actions influences his community in terms of architecture and community service.
This is an image of a stone featured with a statue of Robert Woodruff. The inscription states Robert Woodruff’s purpose for creating the Arts Center was he recognized the arts are essential to community life. The stone also provides information about Woodruff’s credentials as a renowned industrialist and civic leader. This information provokes me to research what Woodruff has specifically done to improve his community in terms of industry and civics.
