Larry Adams, Dodge City, places flowers on his friend Jim Brothers' sculpture 'From The Ashes' at the Lawrence Visitors Center. Friends gathered to celebrate Brothers' life on Sunday. A large washboard, created by Brothers' band mate Matt Kirby, hangs from the sculpture. The Lawrence artist was a nationally recognized figurative sculptor and a washboard player with the Alferd Packer Memorial String Band from Lawrence. He died in August at the age of 72.
