ATLANTApix: Boys and Girls Club Sculpture Garden

Sculpture Garden at the
Boys and Girls Club of America headquarters
In front of the national headquarters of the Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA), at 1275 Peachtree Street, is a sculpture garden dedicated to the memory of Hays Clark.

Clark was on the National Board of Governors of the Boys and Girls Club of America. He founded several clubs in Florida and was involved with others. Today, there are more than 4,000 Clubs.

The sculpture garden features nine bronze statues of children, one with three figures (photo). The statues show children playing (baseball, soccer) and studying (on a laptop, with a magnifying glass, reading a book).

In addition to the sculpture garden, established in appreciation of Clark's contributions to the BGCA, Clark was honored with the Herbert Hoover Humanitarian Award. President Hoover was one of the founding fathers of the Boys and Girls Club.
