Different Abilities Monument


Dedicated on May 8, 2010, at Pickerington Public Library, 201 Opportunity Way.

Three Pickerington North seniors, Michelle Benson, Michele Hare, and Audrey Sanders from Thematics 12, an elective English class, selected, planned, and executed this project through its many stages.

The monument consists of three five-foot-tall columns constructed and covered in tiles that were hand-painted by persons with disabilities, along with unimpaired persons who advocate for their advancement. The three columns represent cognitive, physical, and non-disabled. The library was chosen as the site for the monument as it unites the community as a strong resource of learning. By placing the monument there; the hope is to raise awareness and appreciation for those that are differently-abled.
