Installed in 2021. A still-life work honoring the hardworking community members who build, grow, educate, and protect the Clay Center community. Featured in this mural are the actual equipment and tools of various departments that serve the area:

Public Utilities – safety helmet and insulated gloves
Educators – red apple and eraser
Fire Department - pitchfork, axe, and protective equipment
Healthcare – stethoscope
Police Department - protective equipment and restraints

In the midst of these objects sets a folded American flag. The key to the City of Clay Center is placed bottom center.

The still-life genre of painting is a classical category that became its’ own artistic style with Dutch artists in the 16th century. It is characterized by depicting inanimate objects without motion. The subject matter of still-life artworks are usually commonplace items such as food, jewelry, flowers, or books.
