Gilbert E. Young | He Ain't Heavy Foundation | 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award by AC Button II
Sculptor AC Button II of Carolina Sculpture Studio designs and carves the He Ain't Heavy Foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award for legendary Atlanta-based Fine Artist Gilbert Young. Sculpted from Verde Antique Serpentine with gold leaf accents, Button's work adapts cues from Young's famed painting "He Ain't Heavy", honoring 50 years achievement in the arts and social activism.
Gilbert Young has been both a mentor and friend to Button since they joined forces in 2007 when Young's "King Is Ours" movement began working to repatriate the outsourced Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial. Although their efforts to return the feature statue commission to USA artists and artisans failed, they were applauded for exposing the truth and continue to gain support to this day.
