The memorial is a fanciful creation by Texan

artists Seth and Missy Vandable linking

reading to imagination, creativity, and success.

About two hundred Viennians turned out on this crisp but beautiful morning to mark the installation of a memorial dedicated to the late, popular Mayor Jane Seeman, and her advocacy of volunteerism as the catalyst of community strength.

This is the first production of the Public Arts Commission, which is part of Vienna’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Council Member Linda Colbert,

daughter of Jane Seeman,

reflects warmly on growing

up with her activist parents

Mayor Laurie DiRocco and

Colbert unveil the statue.

Funding for the memorial was through private funds.  Westbriar Civic Association donated $500.
