Pueblo West Women’s League dedicates sculpture to first responders

The Pueblo West Women's League, first responders, and artist of the sculpture Eric McCue stand in front of the sculpture 'Every Day Heroes' Tuesday May 25, 2021.

2020 was an unprecedented year in which first responders displayed courage and heroism that did not go unnoticed, and the Pueblo West Women’s League donated a sculpture to the community in honor of first responders called ‘Every Day Heroes.’

The seventh piece of artwork that the league has donated to the community had its official dedication to the community’s first responders Tuesday.

“We’ve never really done anything like this before,” Pueblo West Women’s League president Barb Murfit said. “But it just seemed like the right thing to do, the right time to do it.”

The sculpture was placed in between the sheriff and fire station, and features an EMT, a sheriff and a firefighter.

Eric McCue, the artist who produced the sculpture, said when working on this piece his inspiration was unity — which was accomplished as staff from both the sheriff’s department, fire station and EMT’s gathered alongside the Pueblo West Women’s league for the dedication.
