Spectacular New Benches in Old Southwest Roanoke

My good friend Anna Wentworth, who lives in the neighborhood, gives the following report on the spectacular new benches in Highland Park, Old Southwest Roanoke:

"These are the original sculptural benches installed this morning around the fountain in Old Southwest. The artist (Don Lawler) did them for a good price. I was amazed he could do them for the money we had available and the funding was from the One Percent for Art (and $1,000 from Old Southwest Inc.). They are museum quality, made from Indiana limestone and really classy. I hope OSW residents appreciate them."
