Here is the story of its creation:

Grate Thoughts » Blog Archive » American Pride Sculpture

This is my ninth year of donating art for The Attleboro Arts Museum Benefit Art Auction.  The Museum staff and Museum friends are very appreciative of all the artists’ donations, so it is a pleasure to help their cause. They also put me in touch with Vic Bonneville who exhibited my art at the Attleboro Area Industrial Museum in 2004.

In the past I contributed many pieces of decorative art for Attleboro’s fundraisers.  But now that I am focusing on sculpture relief works which gained recognition as “Grate Works” of art, I thought “American Pride” would be the perfect donation.  My Nine-Eleven Memorial Tribute” is all about patriotism and caring about our country.  Grate Thoughts » Blog Archive » Nine Eleven Tribute in 2011

“American Pride” was the featured image for National Post Card Week in 2009.  That post card can be purchased from  Walt’s Postcards  MASTRANGELO GRATES Postcards Waltspaper.

Having honed her skill so artfully, Bobbi has enabled another iron grate to be lifted to higher levels. Now others are able to see it, aptly described, as an “American Pride”.

I just read the story of the creation of American Pride.

Hi Bobbi,
I own a child care center in North Attleboro Massachusetts and we have chosen to teach the students about you as an artists and your artwork. Each year we create a Fine Arts Program and have the students introduced to different artists medium. We explain a little about the author, they are Infants all the way to Kindergarten, and they mimic a chosen piece. Do you ever travel to schools, the students would love to meet you?
Thank you
