"Pioneer Mother"(Courtesy: Charles Swaney)
Sculpted by Samuel Cashwan in 1938 for the Works Progress Administration (WPA), “Pioneer Mother” is a deco modern-style sculpture on the south side of the Clare High School, now the Clare Middle School. It has the appearance of a madonna and child, with the mother’s face elongated and the child clinging to her breast. It was recently conserved and remains outside the school.
