ORLAND, Calif. - A new art sculpture now graces Centennial Park in Orland.

It's a life-size bronze statue of two children reading a book, sitting on a school bench in 1910. That's when Orland was first incorporated as a city.

Orland artist Tamara Bonet was commissioned to create the piece, at the request of the Orland Arts Commission, and presented it to the city as a gift.

It's called "our hope and our heritage."

Bonet used two local children as models. Max Peeler was 13 and Abigail Allard was 10 when they were chosen, four years ago. They were on hand for the ribbon cutting last week.

The book featured in the sculpture shows a picture of the historic Mission Grammar School. Orland's town historian, Dr. Gene Russel, worked closely with Bonet as a consultant for the time period.

The creation and donation were made possible through donations from local citizens and businesses.
