“4 U 2 Learn” was dedicated in the Children’s Section on the first floor of the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library in Oklahoma City on March 25, 2009. Ron Norick had always been dedicated to improving education in the city, so this interactive statue is very fitting in the library. The library was built as part of the Metropolitan Area Projects, a one-cent tax dedicated to funding public projects around the city. Library system Executive Director Donna Morris said that 4 U 2 Learn will “serve for decades to come to remind generations of children and adults of the importance of the library as a center for life-long learning.”
It was sculpted by the famous Susan Geissler, who is known throughout the nation as one of the most important female realistic sculptors. It is an interactive piece of art as children are able to freely cling throughout the sculpture, as well as onto blocks. It includes a teacher reading a book to two very attentive children, one boy and one girl. Funding for the sculpture was provided by the James H. and Madalynne Norick Foundation.
