Last Sunday, April 17th, The Annual President's Council Reception was held at the Fountain of the Muses at Brookgreen Gardens. Special guest and sculptor Simon Kogan introduced the 2011 Brookgreen Medal "Garden of Liberty"
Rich forwarded this image of the reception program, signed by the sculptor. Thanks. Nice medal. Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC, holds a magnificent collection of sculpture, including quite a number of works designed by sculptors who also designed U.S. coins, including Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Their annual medals are quality productions by some of today's top sculptors and medal designers.
Here’s an excerpt from another document Rich sent:
The 2011 Brookgreen Medal, Garden of Liberty by Simon Kogan, depicts South Carolina's historic past. Simon Kogan writes: "The road to the final design of the 2011 medal was educationally long. I lost myself in the history of South Carolina, spending countless hours in libraries and on the internet searching the information that would trigger my imagination. I went through tons of themes and sketches and them 'June 28, 1776' appeared... The Battle of Sullivan's Island.
