Artist: Larry Mohr (1921 - 2013) Primary
As the dedication plaque indicates, VEE-I is dedicated to those Catholics who helped Jews escape persecution during the Holocaust, during which twenty members of Mohr’s family perished. The artist himself agreed on the choice of Fairfield red for the sculpture, as its initial unfinished surface blended too well into the surrounding landscape.
