In Charlie's Spirit - A Bishop Sculpture Garden

In Charlie’s Spirit – 
A sculpture garden 

In 2016, Charlie Buck was in the second grade when he passed away suddenly, without warning.  Charlie faced numerous health challenges in his short life. But his joy in life was palpable.

In the spring of 2019, the Buck Family and the Bishop and Arlington Communities will be erecting a sculpture garden in honor of Charlie’s Spirit. It will be dedicated to all the children of the Bishop School who face adversity and who still find a way to smile between moments of struggle. Our hope is this sculpture garden will bring hope to the children of Bishop, as Charlie did to all those who knew him well. 

There will be three sculptures. Each kinetic sculpture will stand approximately ten feet tall and three feet wide.
