2a) Out of the Park- Artist: Emilie Alles

Patrons: Jay and Tawnya Wilkinson

This design is inspired by leadership, which I’ve learned a lot about from Launch Leadership, a great Nebraska organization.  The baseball themed design represents a team.  Great leaders create great teams.  And great teams work together to knock the ball “Out of the Park”.

Design and Construction notes:
-One Fiberglass heart and Nebraska base created by Patrick Keough.
-The heart shape will have a lower portion removed and the bat will be extended using fiberglass material.
-The base will be painted to look like a baseball diamond, and a bat and ball will be painted on the heart.
-Three coats of a UV protectant will be used for the finish.
