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.
