“Forge”
Artist: Thomas Sayre
2015
Peoria Arts Commission
 

Entitled Forge, the name refers to the pioneer spirit in the sense of “forging ahead”. The title also refers to the materials and craft of forging steel in a forge. The form of the two sculptural wheel elements comes from the name of the park, the spirit of the land on which the park sits, and from the history of the Town and region of Peoria. In some ways one can see the history of the area as a series of wheels rolling across the land. First there were horse and mule-drawn wagons, then the wheels of the railroad, which made way for the eventual farming of the land which employed yet more variety of wheels. In some ways, the wheels represent the mediation between humans and the land. Our technology, as symbolized by the wheel, has allowed us to survive, make habitable, and even flourish in a harsh climate and landscape. With Pioneer Park comes more wheels: the wheels of recreation: of bicycles, of strollers, of playground equipment, of Frisbees, and wagons carrying picnics, and of course, the wheels of the automobile which bring people to and from the park. It is our hope that this piece will settle into the desert landscape just as the Robertson family did many decades ago and become a landmark pointing to the park in celebration of the past use of the land as well as its exciting new life through the establishment of the community park.
