Gateway Airport Sculpture Monument

“Aerial Beauty”
by Bob Zasadny

Increasing the aesthetic appeal of Evansville’s main corridors has been a long-time dream for the Keep Evansville Beautiful staff. In 2015, KEB unveiled our Gateway Airport Sculpture Monument. The Sculpture, designed by Bob Zasadny, incorporates a myriad of symbolism. Bob said that his design for the sculpture depicts “Breaking free from Earth’s bonds and soaring like a bird… This piece is meant to show the moment of transition to flight. The wings allude to P-47 propellers; the negative space between the wings resembles the bend in the river; the color relates to aluminum heritage; the body resembles Native American weaponry. Overall shape is meant to connote Delta and American Eagle logos.”




“I just love volunteering for Keep Evansville Beautiful! It is a wonderful organization that makes a huge difference in the appearance of our City.”

“Everyone at KEB helps each other. When something needs to be done, everyone jumps right in and helps – from the board to the staff. That’s my job too. I volunteer in the office and help anyone who needs it. My job is a blessing really, a gift.”
