About the Artwork

Previously titled “Census Five,” the Batten Disease Memorial Sculpture is meant, as the name makes clear, to be a memorial to all the children who have lost or will lose their lives to Batten Disease. It was put together in June of 2004, and presented in loving memory by the family of Dylan James Carr, who died less than two years prior, after living to the age of ten with this disease. It is said that it resembles an airplane’s tail wing, because Dylan liked the idea of flying an airplane.
