“Paul Revere”

at Heritage Park

Updated December 23, 2009

Paul Revere

This magnificent bronze sculpture captures the bravery and patriotism of Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere who rode to warn American patriots northwest of Boston that the British intended to raid Lexington and Concord. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's 1863 ballad “Paul Revere's Ride” immortalized Revere's actions and is displayed on the Heritage Park Play Island.

Artist Dee Clements has a masters degree in sculpture and is a member of the National Sculptor's Guild. He has had works commissioned by the McDonald's Corporation, Hewlett-Packard, Inc. and Marriot Ownership Resorts. He has had many pieces placed in both public and private collections.

Clements said: “Creating my first sculpture out of clay I felt I had found my passion and this has continued to be a main thread in my life. Early in my career I enjoyed doing abstract sculpture, but I have always drawn the human figure. Today my direction in sculpture has become the study of anatomy to be used as a tool to capture through the face and figure the spiritual essence of the individual.”
