Knoxville — AMVETS Post 63 Communications Officer Don Zoutte says that artist Bubba Sorensen is expected to begin painting Knoxville's Freedom Rock on July 16.
AMVETS raised the money for the rock, which recently placed in Young's Park. Sorensen has become famous for his patriotic paintings and hopes to have at least one in every county in Iowa.
The Knoxville project was briefly delayed, due to the birth of Sorensen's child. Zoutte did not have a time for when Sorensen is expected to arrive in Knoxville.
We will follow the progress of the Freedom Rock as the project moves forward.
