Racine artist's sculpture adorns Mason's office

State Rep. Cory Mason, D-Racine, today unveiled an impressive piece of metal ribbon art made by a Racine-area artist and hung in his office at the State Capitol.

The piece, entitled "American Glory," is an original design by Deborah Isaacson, commissioned by Mason and displayed in his Assembly office, Room 321 Est.

“It’s truly an honor to have Racine artwork showcased at the State Capitol,” Rep. Mason said, “This piece of art is a direct reflection of the talent, creativity and American spirit of the people who reside in the 62nd Assembly District.”

Isaacson, shown here with Mason and the sculpture, runs her custom workshop, Metal Ribbon Art, out of her home in Sturtevant. Her artwork is also displayed at the Artists’ Gallery on Main Street. She will also participate in the “Monuments around Racine” festival on June 13 and 14. More information about her artwork is on her website.

P.S. Mason assures us that no taxpayer money went toward the commission of the artwork.
