Moving Violation

Robert Shangle's avatar Robert Shangle

"Moving Violation" is a depiction of a familiar small town sight of days gone by - the local police station. Robert Jay Shangle, the living statue performer, portrays a police officer directing traffic and protecting the citizens of his town. This is a tribute to his great-uncle Jay Shangle, a former Grand Rapids policeman. He entered the GRPD in 1924 and left service 1947 working as a patrolman. Inside the station are other statue officers, diligently tending to duty.
