HENDERSON, Ky. — Can a four-foot-tall frog inspire a parent or grandparent to read through a e-book to a kid?

If it is as charming as the newly committed copper sculpture in the new children’s garden at the Henderson County Community Library, it just might.

The frog is the most recent present of the Backyard Club of Henderson to the community and is also one particular of two new parts of public art in Downtown Henderson to be dedicated just a person week aside.

The 2nd, artist Grace Henderson’s “Kentucky Roots Mural” on a aspect wall at 19 S. Primary St., will be devoted at a public ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 12.

The Garden Club’s frog sculpture was dedicated on Aug. 5. Sculpted by Beau Smith of Lovely Frog in Wando, South Carolina, the art piece functions a developed frog seated on a bench, happily reading through a e-book to a gleeful kid frog on its knee. Their unabashed delight is infectious, which is why they may well inspire human grownups to want to browse to a youngster.
