Recognition for YS sculptor here and abroad

"Synchronicity X: I Am the Light of the World" is the title of the sculpture by world-class sculptor and Yellow Springs resident Jon Barlow Hudson. The 16-foot-tall granite sculpture was installed on the campus of Cedarville University in 2008.

Hudson recently returned from a sculpture symposium in Abu Dhabi. On his way home through Beijing, he stopped to attend the unveiling of his latest sculpture, "Cloud & Rain," part of the China-US Peace & Friendship program. This program features four U.S. sculptures being installed in China and four Chinese sculptures being installed in the U.S.

Currently Hudson is working on the firefighter memorial, "Firewall," which will be installed in Stubbs Park in Centerville. To see more of his work, visit www.hudsonsculpture.com.
