Gallery of Patriots

While we were in Sarasota taking pictures of attractions we came upon Gillespie Park. In 1977, in the park's northeast corner, they installed a Gallery of Patriots. So I stopped and took many pictures.

[Bordeauxbarb, 03/26/2019]

The Gallery of Patriots was the brainchild of the city's Hispanic-American Civic Association, and features 14 outdoor busts-on-pedestals of not only Lincoln and Washington, but of Simon Bolivar (Venezuela), Jose Marti (Cuba), and Jose Artigas (Uruguay).
