Champions for Humanity Statues

A magnificent sculpture installation in downtown Oakland, near 19th and Telegraph:  "Remember Them:  25 Champions for Humanity."  Sculptor Matio Chiodo conceived his works in response to events on 9/11, wanting to remind viewers of all the good in the world.  The scale of his work is so striking and the sketching possibilities so wonderful that we decided to return for our First Thursday Sketch Night on August 6th.

Micaela sketching next to two of the four large installations.
