Artists Karen & Tony Barone have created this unique series of sculptures to be installed at public sites: children’s museums & hospitals, municipal buildings, fire stations, and other not-for-profits, to honor & recognize our valiant firefighters and first responders who save, rescue & protect humans and animals alike. Through the creative & instructive expression of art, the “R. HERO” sculptures serve as a reminder of their indefatigable heroism.  There are now 33 “R. HERO” sculptures across the country, including one in San Salvador & Israel.
