Horses of Honor

Horse of Honor4

Nancy Pochis Bank Art Studio was sponsored by Golub and Company to create a life-size police horse for the Chicago public art exhibition, Horses of Honor. Entitled “Star-Crossed Sacrifice,” the horse commemorates one of Chicago’s fallen police officers, Eddie N. Jones Jr. who was shot in the line of duty. Nancy was moved by the star-crossed nature of Officer Jones’ sacrifice and chose to honor him with artwork suggesting Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night, swirling dream-like over our Chicago skyline. On the saddle are hand-lettered words taken from the mission and values of the Chicago Police Department. They describe the ideals for which Officer Jones made the ultimate sacrifice.
