Plaque Inscribed: "The Light Shines Through" honors ALL women who have encouraged literacy in Johnson County and beyond. She does not represent just one woman with her casual and classic style. She embodies timeless characteristics with which everyday women can identify. The sculpture’s details tell the stories of several specific extraordinary women from Johnson County. The female is emerging from a book recognizing women’s stories of the past, present, and those yet to come.

Artist: Kimberly McNeelan

Medium: Bronze, western red cedar, stainless steel, concrete, steel, plywood, paint

Dedicated: Spring 2023
