in St. Charles, including the 30th Anniversary of the dedication of Ēkwabet (the city’s iconic sculpture of
a Native American), the installation and dedication of The Key (the latest piece of public art in the Gratitude Project,
honoring Sharon and Vern Oie), the Park District’s Sculpture in the Park
exhibition, the first anniversary of the SCAC’s signature public art program, Art in Public Places, and the
