artists created two bronze relief panels, which are displayed on either side of
the visitors’ entrance of the fire station.
The larger panel depicts a complex scene of firefighters in the field,
combating an urban fire. The smaller
panel shows firefighters at a station open house, interacting with a group of
children. To prepare for making the
artwork, the artists spent time on the job with firefighters. Their meticulous documentation of what they
witnessed ensured that the fine details of uniforms, fire trucks and equipment
were rendered as accurately as possible in the bronze panels.
