Fall River native’s sculpture installed at Government Center

FALL RIVER — A piece of sculpture that honors the diverse cultures in the city was installed on Monday on the cornerstone of One Government Center. Two years in the making, it was the creation of Fall River native and artist Barney Zeitz.

“We wanted to make this for everyone,” said Zeitz. “It’s indigenous people, immigrants, refugees and the enslaved. It’s about diversity and looking to the future.”

With the help of city workers and a few of his friends, Zeitz oversaw the installation of the 9-foot-tall sculpture that was carefully lifted by a backhoe onto the cornerstone overlooking South Main Street.
