Memories for the Future
Artist Michael Barrett, a former Marine, polished nearly 7,000 pennies – one for every war casualty between 2001 & 2014 – as part of his Memories for the Future exhibit in the Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery. Over the eight-week time span, Barrett's mission was to create a tangible, yet fragile symbol of recognition, mirroring the circular footprint of the Government Center Rotunda. Using a Kevlar ballistic apron, a book, metal polish and 6,805 U.S. pennies, Barrett individually polished each penny, while creating a spiral mosaic on the rotunda floor.
