The Tille K Fowler Memorial


Showing the Way: The Tille K Fowler Memorial Jacksonville FL

This is a sculpture made of aluminum, steel and powder coating. It is located Northbank River Walk, at the termination of Jackson Street, Jacksonville, Florida. It was made by Browner Hatcher in 2009.

Artist Brower Hatcher was inspired by the tree imagery Rev. Barnum McCarthy used in Fowler’s eulogy – “She may have been known as a Steel Magnolia, but to me she was a mighty oak. She reached out in all directions, gracing everything she touched. She always made a difference.” Fowler served as Jacksonville’s first female City Council President from 1982-1985 and later served four terms The sculpture consists of three orbs, one inside another, atop a base. Those three orbs represent three aspects of Fowler’s life, Myrick said, her commitment to family, to community and to country.
