This afternoon, from 3:30 to 4:40 p.m., the Hudson Area Library dedicates the public sculpture by Kris Perry called Still I Rise.
The sculpture, which was inspired by the poem "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou, was purchased by the Galvan Foundation and installed on the grounds of the Galvan Armory, 51 North Fifth Street, where the Hudson Area Library, the City of Hudson Senior Center, and Perfect Ten After School are located. The dedication, which is hosted by the Hudson Area Library Tween Council, will feature a reading of Angelou's poem by a student from Perfect Ten; a Q&A with the sculptor by students from the Hudson City School District, facilitated by Bridget Smith, literacy specialist at Montgomery C. Smith Elementary School; and remarks by Dan Kent, vice president for initiatives at the Galvan Foundation, and representatives of the library, the senior center, and Perfect Ten. Refreshments served in the Community Room of the library will conclude the event.
