Rockford resident Patrick Keeley said he doesn’t care how his Artprize piece scores with judges or where it ends up in the final vote—he just wants to send a message. The image he has installed at 300 Fulton is a life-death image that represents his pro-life beliefs.
“The reason we made the art is to defend the rights of the unborn who are being selected to be aborted,” he stated. “Our piece is about the Creator and how the ‘creation’ is connected. In our piece, all creation is hanging from a cross that is nailed to a nine-foot tall Jewish “Shin” which symbolizes God the Creator.” The piece, titled “all creation” is symbolized by a colorful heart with a mom holding a baby inside. This piece is on display outdoors 24/7 at 300 Fulton (at the intersection of LaFayette).
