A Special Exhibit: Grandmother Love
A bronze sculpture of President Barack Obama and his maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, will be on display in the Sandwich Public Library throughout the month of October. The sculpture, created by internationally acclaimed sculptor Lado Goudjabidze of the Republic of Georgia, has traveled throughout the Commonwealth over the past five years. It reflects the beautiful relationship President Obama had with his grandmother who raised him.
President Obama told us about his grandmother, now let’s tell him about ours! You are invited to draw a picture or write a short story about your grandmother on the worksheets provided at the library. Your story or drawing will be collected and added to a book, which, along with the statue, will be donated to the Obama Presidential Museum in Chicago as a gift from the American people.
