Defenders of Peace

Defenders of Peace, a commissioned aluminum steel 6 feet high work sculpted by artist & sculptor Gary Tillery, depicts all five branches of the armed services recognized symbolically as military stars leading up to toward a dove – the their common goal – peace. The site also includes a bronze larger than life-size army figure contemplating the five plaques embedded in the brickwork, which also identify the U. S. military branches. The work is a daily reminder to CLC students and staff that many citizens have sacrificed to make freedom possible.
