Columbus based artist, Alfred Tibor’s sculpture Reach Out is located on the grounds of the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Commissioned by the Columbus Aids Task Force, Reach Out was created in memoriam of those who have died from and are living with HIV/AIDS. Tibor states, “the sculpture represents the desperation felt by so many AIDS victims and that it is asking for help for those battling HIV/AIDS”. It was completed and placed on Conservatory grounds in 1992 during the Ameriflora exhibition. After Ameriflora, the piece remained on the grounds, with a red flower bed planted in the shape of a ribbon to surround the piece.
To make place for a Children's Garden, the sculpture is planned to be relocated to a field on the souther side by the end of October 2016.
