‘Between Innings’ by Gary Lee Price is a 6 foot tall sculpture located at the Theatre end of Lyric Lane. Sourced from the United States, the bronze sculpture is a depiction of a child sitting on a stack of books reading. The sentiment is ‘knowledge is power – the more knowledge we obtain, the more choices we are free to make and the more empowered we become’.
Words from the artist:
Knowledge is power. The more knowledge we obtain, the more choices we are free to make, the more empowered we become. Often we limit ourselves with shortened or narrowed perspectives. Books open to us larger and more complete perspectives and ultimately, bigger and more brilliant pictures. Youth at its best: studying, learning, growing, dreaming – trying to understand today while coming up with the solutions for tomorrow. These readers elevate to new heights with their continual acquisition of knowledge. Children represent diligent study. Stacks of books represent the higher levels of learning and understanding that come to us through knowledge. Read!
