About This Project

State Capital Grounds, Little Rock, AR
The Arkansas Fallen Firefighters memorial was designed to honor the men and women who have given their lives in the line of duty. This memorial is sited on a predominant location on the State Capitol grounds.


The design includes the names of the fallen men and women, but also honors all who serve their community with a bronze sculpture centrally located within the memorial on a pediment water feature. Additionally, there is an amphitheater which seats 100 people for special events. The ampitheater and memorial wall are compoased of limestone; the paving is constructed of white granite with a braonze Maltese cross in-filled with red granite. Memorial names are engraved in black granite slabs. The sculpture is composed of four larger-than-life figures, representing a centered historic firefighter holding a hozzle, which dispenses water into the fountain. The figure is surrounded by three others, representing a modern firefighter, a forest service firefighter, and a female firefighter paramedic holding a child.
