"Shields of Honor" ©2010 Mark Leichliter - National Sculptors' Guild, all rights reserved. Commissioned through the Colorado Council on the Arts for the Colorado State Patrol Troop Office & Regional Communication Center, Alamosa, CO. Installed May 27, 2010
Cut into the face of the upright column are multiple outlines of the Colorado State Patrol badge. These repeating badge shapes get more distorted toward the edges of the monolith, thus giving the impression
that they are enveloping a sphere. The sculpture has LED floodlights at the bottom, which will illuminate the piece at night.
JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
