“Grace, Love and Joy” A sculpture by Arlon Bayliss at N. Pennsylvania St. and Old Meridian St. About the sculpture: The forty-two feet high illuminated steel sculpture features three pink roses with gold and silver stems wrapped in a ribbon. It includes a small surprise; a bee hidden in plain sight, for viewers to enjoy discovering. From the artist: “Roses are beautiful, universally-understood symbols with many meanings, all of them positive. Three roses mean “I love you”, and pink roses stand for happiness, grace, gratitude and joy.” “My hope is that this sculpture not only beautifies the neighborhood, but also lifts the hearts of folks who visit, live and work there with its everlasting message of grace, love and joy.”
