Seated with Santiago

Inside Town Green Park
The Woodlands, TX 77380
"SEATED WITH SANTIAGO" BY MICHAEL O'BRIEN. “Seated With Santiago” is inspired by the main character in Ernest Hemingway’s novel, The Old Man and the Sea. Santiago must overcome impossible adversity to return to shore with his catch. His heroism is in his solitary resolve and resilience, much like all of us. Worn, weary, and bearing new hard-won scars we find there is dignity and pride in the fight. Sometimes the strength is found in quiet moments, pondering the waves and what unites us. Looking over Town Green park six other art benches are visible when sitting on “Seated with Santiago”. Underwritten by Tom & Patricia Pursley. Dedicated to all who have served our country.
