Welcome to "Victory"
Made entirely of chairs and chair parts. The soldiers of “Victory” stand 16-20 feet tall. Originally constructed from Steve’s vision of bringing awareness to end elderly abuse. The soldiers of “Victory” stood for ‘Stover’s Army’. Recognizing that there are people near and dear to us, who need a helping hand. Soon, we realized that it was more than the elderly that needed help. There are children, animals, the environment, the world as a whole needs “Victory”. We are all broken at one time or another and we need that helping hand to put the pieces back together. And that’s what the soldiers of “Victory” are doing. Helping one another. To reassemble, to resurrect, to celebrate life. Victory!!! The parts used in this exhibit come from all over the world. Italy, China, Poland, Slovenia, Czechoslovakia, to name a few. Many of these parts were trees 80 years ago through Europe and the Eastern block countries. Their leaves breathing the smoke of world wars. Those trees were forested and manufactured into chair parts during the mid-1900’s. Only to sit in storage for the next 40 years, never to see their intended purpose come to fruition. Until now. “Victory”. You can hear it whispering through their leaves. “Victory”. You can feel it in your heart. “Victory”. We need to rise up as a unified civilization of people. And believe. “Victory”. Una faccia, una razza. One face, one race………..Victory!!!!!
