The Artist

Ted Clausen, a Boston-based, accomplished and nationally celebrated public artist was engaged to create a sculpture that offers a living encounter for all in Needham and beyond. His compassion, collaborative approach, and deep understanding of the values in our community have enabled us as true part- ners to create “Own Your Peace”. His layered, textured, multi-sensory works include Boston’s Vendome Firefighters Memorial and the City of Reading, Pennsylvania’s 250th Anniversary Sculpture. His art has served to carry the strengths of the past into the present and to transform communities.
