mcLainWe gained a lot of insight  into the inspiration for this unusual sculptural installation that is now in search of additional funding.  It is a totally modern and visually appealing design that will not only fit well in the proposed location, but will be visible to people driving by, especially when it is lit in the evening.  With her family’s long history in Chestertown and with Washington College, this artful construct seems a perfect fit and properly honors the history of both her father, Dr. Joseph H. McClain and Dr. John A. Conkling, both of whom made great contributions to the science and safety of fireworks.

Ms. McLain has written and published a book “For the Love of Fireworks”.  All profits will directly fund this installation.  Contact Lynn McLain directly to purchase the book.  

In addition, for those who prefer to simply donate, send a check to:   Washington College, Office of Advancement, 300 Washington Ave.  Chestertown, MD 21620-1197.  You can take a full charitable deduction for such direct contributions.  Mark the memo on your check:  ATRIUM SCUPTURE PROJECT.
