A 17-foot sculpture on Jefferson Boulevard represents peace, love and respect.

It is the culmination of a two-year project called Piece 24, a collaboration between artist Karen Blessen, real estate investor Craig Schenkel and students from Adamson and Sunset high schools along with many other artists and creative people.

Students who collaborated on the project were chosen through interviews with the staff of Blessen’s nonprofit, 29 Pieces. They earned $250 in scholarship money for every 30 hours they worked.

A dedication for the sculpture is 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17.
