South Dakota
Materials: Bronze
Gallagher, Pub 500

Artist Statement:

WWII saw food and metal shortages. Americans stepped up to the plate by planting gardens and canning their own food. Everyone in the family helped, and neighbors helped each other. Hungry community members and strangers were not turned away. This little girl uses her imagination to help the war effort.
