The statue is a gift from Sue and Marty Allen commemorating President Ford’s centennial birthday.

Grill also created a seven-foot version of the statue that sits in front of the Ford Museum.

Grill says he tried to represent Ford springing into action and trying to heal the country in the sculpture.
