About this Exploration:

Lincoln Park is the place for MANY photo opportunities.  Each piece of artwork in Lincoln Park represents and describes the history of Russell.
The center piece of the park is the Seventh Trumpet which is commonly known as the Angel In The Park.  It was constructed in 1988 to symbolize a turnaround of the local economy and a new beginning.  The artists idea was to portray that when the angel blows the 7th trumpet, better times and new beginnings were ahead. 
Oil field and farm steel materials were used to construct the angel.  This was symbolic of the oil and farm related livelihood of the area.  The structure is 12 feet tall and rests on a five foot base.  Six hundred feet of quart-inch malleable steel creates the figures hair.
Trudy Furney designed the Angel In The Park.  She was a National Art Educator in secondary education in 1987, a recognized Kansas artist, and retired Russell High School art instructor.   Former students helped with the construction of this art piece. 
Limestone gateways lead you into the Angel In The Park.  The limestone gateways tell the story of how limestone was used in the 1800s to construct buildings, homes, fence posts, bridges, art, and more! 
Every step you take in Lincoln Park gives a story about Russell through unique pieces of artwork!
