Linemen Monument Moves Into Place

And so it begins

A post shared by platform ART (@platformart) on

A wooden box holding a sculpture honoring electric lineman was unloaded from a truck on Lemon Street near Lake Mirror this morning. Crews used a crane to lift the sculpture into place on a pedestal on the lake side of the Lakeland Electric building. After the sculpture is secured to the pedestal this morning, a parachute tarp will cover it until a public unveiling ceremony scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Friday. The monument was fabricated in Pennsylvania from steel and bronze in Pennsylvania based on a design created by three Lakeland High School students who won a competition sponsored by Platform Art. The wife of a lineman killed in the line of duty watched the installation this morning and told The Ledger it was moving for her to see it | Video: installation
