"Bucket Brigade" and Fire Station #4 Opening Ceremonies and Ribbon Cutting

  • Roswell Fire Station #4 Corner of Old Alabama Road and Market Blvd. Roswell, GA 30076 USA

Join the community in welcoming Roswell's new Fire Station #4. Opening ceremonies and ribbon cutting will include the unveiling of “Bucket Brigade”, by Peter Reiquam. The event is scheduled for April 27, 2017, 8:15 PM. The new sculpture will welcome staff and visitors with a work of art that salutes and affirms the rich history of firefighters. The sculpture is based on the familiar, old-time method of fighting fires with a line of people passing water-filled buckets, one hand to the next. “Bucket Brigade” illustrates this same tradition by using a series of buckets as individual frames in a sort of stop-motion animation, like pages of a flipbook. A simulated splash molded from thermoplastic material will appear to spill from the first bucket in the line and a large volume of polymer water, illuminated by LED lights, will appear to be thrown from the largest bucket at the end of the line. The special evening time allow "Bucket Brigade" for the buckets to light up the event.
