Embracing Peace Departure
For the last half of 2016, The Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial, with the Seward Johnson Atelier, was honored to host the 25′ sculpture, “Embracing Peace.” The display was intended to promote fundraising for The Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial, the state’s officially recognized tribute to its contributions during WWII.
On January 5, 2017 a cold group of onlookers bid the work farewell.
