She Ain't Heavy

Sponsor: Edmond Visual Arts Commission partnered with Bill and Ruth Trammel

She Ain’t Heavy is a bronze sculpture of a young boy helping a younger girl to reach up high for an apple. The art piece is on top of a round concrete foundation about 1 ft. high and 2 ft. in diameter. It is in a gorgeously landscaped area full of colorful flowers and an assortment of plants.

The boy has his arms around the girl below her hips, trying to lift her high enough up so she can grab the apple. The boy is wearing overalls, short-sleeved shirt, and he has an apple in his front right pocket.

The girl is looking up at the apple as she tries to reach it with her right hand. Her left hand is resting on the boy’s upper right arm, for balance. She too is wearing overalls with a short-sleeved shirt. The girl has a bandage on the back of her left ankle. Her hair is pulled back in a loose ponytail. Both children are barefoot.
