Courage in Language and Thought – The Dreiser Legacy Donations
Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean. Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes. Theodore Dreiser
Theodore Dreiser is a nationally renowned writer who was born in Terre Haute in 1871. The author of 8 novels, many short stories and at least 15 non-fiction works, he is best known for his novels Sister Carrie and An American Tragedy. Dreiser’s groundbreaking work in fiction defined American Naturalism and inspired many important writers from his time to today.
Courage in Language and Thought – The Dreiser Legacy is a project of Art Spaces to honor Theodore Dreiser as a local treasure through a sculpture, to be located at the north (Walnut Street) entrance of Vigo County Public Library. This work will become part of Terre Haute’s growing “Cultural Trail.”
To date, Art Spaces has raised approximately 75% of the funds needed, and welcomes donations in any amount. Gifts of $500 or more will be acknowledged in a permanent plaque adjacent to the sculpture. Contribute to this project here.
