"Freedom" was sponsored by Dr. Gupta. It is a rearing horse displayed in front of the Shawnee Heart Center at 3700 N. Kickapoo. It is a beautifully painted flag motif with the blue field and stars on the head, and the body striped in red and white. The artist is Marlys Gallagher.
In 2007, the City of Shawnee sponsored the Horse in the City program as part of its Public Arts Project. Life-sized fiberglass horses were sponsored by companies, organizations and individuals in the Shawnee area. Choosing one of four poses (Standing Thoroughbred, Standing Arabian, Grazing and Rearing), each sponsor worked with an artist, designing how their horse would be painted. Some depict paintings specific to the sponsor's business or interests, and others depict Oklahoma history and other generic designs.
The horses are displayed throughout the City of Shawnee and it is such a joy to suddenly spot one alongside the road. Enjoy finding as many of these as you can.
