Punctuating the southern landscape of Roosevelt Park
is a spectacular masterpiece called Light Dispelling Darkness. This work of art by ceramic artist, Waylande Gregory was created in 1937. Sculpted from terracotta, the fountain features intricately-carved figures and objects like horses, artists and local factory workers. It is the representation of the artist's definition of a world reigned by education and a scientific temper, and the defeat of social evils and natural calamities. Ponder at this spot for your own interpretation.
