Rockford [Rock Men Guardians - by Terese Agnew]

Rock Men Guardians - by Terese Agnew
Fieldstone and Red Granite
Installed: 1987-1988
Location: Rock River Rec Path, Rockford, IL.

Donated by John and Linda Anderson, and the Art in parks Committee, these are sometimes referred to as vikings, gladiators, or Transformers! Each 3-ton guardian "came to life" following careful placement of the 40-to-100 pound boulders by the artist and her helpers.  Community volunteers came forward to assit Milwaukee artist terese Agnew to construct two Rock Men in May of 1987 and the final two in October of 1988.
