Project Overview

Aspire - Brewster Elementary School

In 2007, local artist Mark Nowell installed a 40 foot sculpture at William H. Brewster Elementary School. The painted steel sculpture was designed and fabricated by Nowell who has completed several works of public art throughout his career as an artist. Nowell titled the work Aspire in the hopes that it would motivate the students to aspire to do great things in their lifetimes.
