Who: Sculpt America

What: Announces it's "Putting Up Crosses Campaign"

Where: All across America.

When: Officially Starting durring the "National Bible Week" November 18th - 25th 2007.

Why: We have decided to Nationally launch this Campaign during National Bible Week, recognizing that Jesus is the Word of God, incarnate, just the Bible is the word of God.

This is also Thanksgiving week, and we see no other reason to be more Thankful than for the free gift that God has offered to all mankind.

The third reason we have chosen this week to Nationally launch this campaign is in recognition of Oklahoma's 100th birthday on November 16th, which is just 2 days prior to the beginning of National Bible Week. (Happy Birthday Oklahoma!)

Additional Information:
Brenda Crocker-Angel, the chosen artist for this campaign, is currently enlarging her sculpture, "The Lamb of God" to a monumental 16 feet tall. She is working in the clay stage right now, as she prepares to cast "The Lamb of God" in Bronze, using the lost wax method of casting.

An unveiling of this sculpture will be scheduled for later this month. Locations for these monuments are being sought around the country. Sculpt America is seeking donations of for placement of these monuments.

These sculptures can be used as fund raisers for ministries, schools and organizations. Each monument can hold 10,000 names of donors, which will be sculpted into the actual bronze of the cross.

David Nunley, a Broken Arrow, OK sculptor, who is on the board for Nature Works, has loaned Brenda a steel base for the armature of this sculpture.

Artist Bio:
In the fall of 1992 Brenda Crocker-Angel had dream of Jesus on the Cross. She heard someone say to her, I want you to sculpt what I have just shown you. Prior to this dream, she had never sculpted anything before, and to this day has never received formal training. "The Lamb of God" sculpture is a direct result of that dream and is the center-piece of this campaign.
Brenda currently has a sculpture at the White House. And received a phone call from the White House Staff informing her, that her sculpture, "Liberty Leads Her People to Justice", will be placed in The National Collection Museum, in Washington, D.C. She has received a Letter from President George W. Bush regarding that sculpture.

"``Selah,'' an exhibit of biblically inspired works of art by Tulsa artist … Brenda Angell"

" - What Angell has created here is a series of visual parables -- a sermon in sculpture, drawing and collage. It's one of the most unabashedly devout shows you'll see."…

" - Angell presents a series of works that depict Christ on the cross. These pieces -- sculpture, prints and drawings -- focus exclusively on Jesus' head and its crown of thorns. Angell began creating these pieces in 1992 after awaking from a dream about Jesus' death; one of these pieces, titled ``Eli, Eli, lama sabach thani? (My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?),'' was presented last year to Tulsa's Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church."

" - the power of her message is undeniable."
