On the Way to the Market by Alex Palkovich won the People’s Choice Award in a Brookgreen Gardens Competition. Palkovich had searched for the perfect model for this sculpture for years. He found Deborah Baccus walking down the sidewalk during the SC Pecan Festival.
This 4-foot statue is displayed at the St. Helena branch of the Beaufort County Library. A 9-foot version is ready to be installed at the entrance to the City Center Farmer’s Market in Florence.
