VIDEO: A public art sculpture was placed at Tulsa’s Fire Station 33 near 41st and 129th. The City of Tulsa Arts Commission chose artist Joe Norman and the National Sculptors’ Guild for this $48,000 project. According to the National Sculptors’ Guild, this sculpture is intended to “activate the site and signify the exemplary service of firefighters in a single, free-standing sculpture.” According to the National Sculptors’ Guild, the stainless steel sculpture, titled “Protect,” is six feet tall, and the title written in red lettering is visible from one direction. From two other sides a gray silhouette of a firefighter is visible. And from the final side, opposite “Protect,” is “an abstraction, symbolic of the unknowns that firefighters face.” “The Arts Commission is very impressed with this artist,” Commission Chair Pam Deatherage said.
