92 County Walk- Hancock County

92 County Walk- Hancock County

   

Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley was born and raised on Greenfield. He wrote about life in Hancock County through poems such as “little Orphan Annie” and “The Old Swimmin’ Hole.”

This piece depicts the words of a poetic refrain flowing one after another as they take on the shape of a human, eventually forming a man’s silhouette. James Whitcomb Riley is represented through his poetic words; small pieces of turquoise stone simulate his blue eyes.
