Description: 

This bronze sculpture of the Lewis and Clark Expedition team includes Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, York, Sacagawea, and Lewis's Newfoundland dog, Seaman (listed on the artist's website). The group rests on a rocky base while looking out in all directions and observing what lies ahead. Lewis and Clark are in the midst of consulting their instruments and each other. The team stands alone, facing what the viewer's imagination can assume is the uncharted Frontier in the space around the sculpture. They appear cautious yet brave and together convey the essence of discovery.
