The World That is To Come (REMOVED)

1965 / Creator Unknown / Parma

This sculpture was given to the Valley Forge High School as a gift from the class of 1965. It is believed that it was created by the art students of that class, but that information is currently unconfirmed. In those years, the courtyard where it was placed was open to the students before school, at lunch, and after school. It was made of a material that was predominately cement aggregate. Over the years it began to spall and fracture and in either the very late 80’s or early 90’s, it had deteriorated to the point that, as a safety issue, it was decided that it had to be removed except for the original pedestal. In 2015 at their 50th reunion, the class of 1965 raised money for a sundial to be placed on the original pedestal for display. --Information provided by Rick Meeks, President of the Valley Forge Alumni Association (class of '73.)
