Set along the banks of the Mississippi River, “A Simpler Time” includes a life-size sculpture of children and their dog.  The design of the sculpture is a traditional figurative bronze that depicts an old tradition of greeting the boats on the river.  The piece is surrounded by inlayed bricks which incorporate the names of the project contributors.
