The death of sculptor Earline Elizabeth Heath King on Monday was a big loss for The City of Arts and Innovation. The model she set as a public-arts advocate is one that more of us would do well to emulate.

Art has long abounded in Winston-Salem, but only in the last several years has it taken off in our public places. King, a graduate of Reynolds High School and Greensboro College, was responsible for much of that. She and her husband, Joe King, performed on the vaudeville circuit, including at USO shows for World War II troops, before settling down here. She didn't take a sculpture class until she was 50. But once she did, that career quickly took off.
