Artist Statement

Steve Ohlrich

The painting is about the connections of all people around the three pillars of the United Way’s mission: education, income and health. Featured on the trees are images that symbolize the pillars – a laurel, a golden acorn and the Rod of Asclepius. The foreground setting is Waukesha County’s Kettle Moraine landscape with Milwaukee’s skyline on the horizon.
