PHOTO: At a training facility out of public view off Highway 287, local firefighters conduct exercises to prepare for all types of emergencies. Now those firefighters are greeted by a massive steel sculpture commemorating the work they do to protect the community. Local firefighter Brandon Russell collaborated with Laramie Public Art Coalition to create the sculpture, titled “The Vitruvian Firefighter.” The large metal work is a nod to Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing “The Vitruvian Man,” said Laura Zorch McDermit, LPAC executive director. Da Vinci’s original features a man with arms and legs spread with a circle drawn around the perimeter of his body. Similarly, “The Vitruvian Firefighter” features a firefighter in protective gear in the same pose.
