Day 364: Saluting the pioneers of healthcare in Spokane
Our visit to Spokane has given us an extra day to relax and enjoy the city. Although the weather has been rainy and grey I set out for a walk in the River Park today. This city has an exceptional number of public sculpture. This series is dedicated to those pioneers who made the health care system in Spokane. The life-sized sculptures here show a man with a wheelbarrow and a nun with a trowel doing the physical building. I wonder how often we consider those laborers whose work led to the creation of those buildings in which we receive care? Many hands and strong backs made it possible. Thanks to those workers.
