“Reach High and You Will Go Far”


By Josh Sarantitis in 2000.  Located at 20th and Arch Streets

“Symbolically, the painting is a testament to the value of human aspiration, a visual homage to the notion of dreaming it and achieving it.  The tableau at the bottom seems to represent both the negative forces that can get in the way of one’s goals and the unpleasantness that can be left behind after achieving success.” (Golden, Rice & Kinney p89)
