Victory Victory

Share This Page

“Victory Victory” is a monument honoring black officers from the First World War and the first Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) of the Second World War. This welded stainless steel sculpture takes on an abstract shape whose fluid and flamelike forms recall the splashy brushstrokes of Abstract Expressionist painters. The sculpture is surrounded by a large granite reflecting pool with water fall, and the ever turbulent pool of remembrance. The balance of the site between Clayton Hall and the Chapel is a serene landscaped setting known as the Walk of Honor.
