MEET THE ARTIST
Siouxland Freedom Park’s Freedom Rock was painted by Freedom Rock artist: Ray “Bubba” Sorensen II in 2021.
Bubba’s work can now be seen across the country. He began painting large boulders with scenes giving unique recognition to veterans who are from the area where the boulders sit in 1999.
Siouxland Freedom Park’s boulder was donated by Frame Aligners. The 21-ton rock was transported to the park on June 8th, 2020 thanks to Lux Brothers Trucking and Barnhart Crane.
LiteForm and Nelson Commercial Construction donated the materials and labor for the concrete slab.
The rock and bringing “Bubba” to Siouxland is made possible by fundraising efforts by Siouxland Freedom Park’s Remembrance Run group, the Siouxland Community Foundation and the Missouri River Runners.
What Drives Us
Siouxland Freedom Park, a nonprofit corporation, honors American Veterans and the men and women currently serving the United States by providing education of the role the American military plays in preserving American’s freedom, oral histories of those who served, and a healing place for reflection and contemplation.
