New Brother Sister Statue"Brother Sister" Statue

Boys Town unveiled the "Brother Sister" statue June 6, 2017 in honor of our centennial year. Designed by Matthew Placzek, the statue represents that Boys Town serves both girls and boys. The piece, titled- "The Work Continues," is 7 feet tall and was crafted in Omaha. It was cast in bronze in Colorado before returning to the Boys Town campus. The statue it replaced is located in the Boys Town Hall of History. The public is encouraged to come see the statue anytime.
