  1. TU students, professor recreate missing museum sculpture

    In the 1940s, the late Laura Pope Forester created the life-sized “Gold Star Mother” statue as part of a memorial to honor military service members who lost their lives and the families they left behind. The self-taught artist created the statue, and about 200 other works of art, at her home near Ochlocknee, Georgia, in Grady County, before her death in 1953. As one of the few women artists of her time, Forester’s work received much acclaim during the 20th century.
