Diversity Sculpture, 2021
By Barney Zeitz
“We wanted to make this for everyone. It’s indigenous people, immigrants, refugees and the enslaved. It’s about diversity and looking to the future.”
A piece of sculpture that honors the diverse cultures in the city was installed on Monday on the cornerstone of One Government Center. Two years in the making, it was the creation of Fall River native and artist Barney Zeitz.
With the help of city workers and a few of his friends, Zeitz oversaw the installation of the 9-foot-tall sculpture that was carefully lifted by a backhoe onto the cornerstone overlooking South Main Street.
