Carousel Horses Unveiled

Two more horses in the Around Town Carousels Abound Project were presented at Meridian's Union Station Thursday. Dozens gathered for the introduction of "Traveler" and "The Iron Horse" to the community.

"I started on one side of the horse," said Julie Lee, designer of The Traveler, "wanting to show the engine part which is the main beautiful area of the front part of the horse. And as it goes around the side, I wanted to transfer it where you saw inside the horse, one of the cars like it's still and you are able to see that people are dining."

Artist Jim Brashier designed the Iron Horse. The art project is a tourism project and special fundraiser for Hope Village for Children.
