High Cotton



Here's a break from all the fog, clouds and rain...High Cotton.

One of Selma's Butterfly Project sculptures, "High Cotton" is sponsored by J.A. Minter & Son, which operated a longtime cotton gin in Tyler, Alabama, and is painted by Anne High.

The sculpture graces the grounds of Sturdivant Hall, but depending on seasonal events there, you might find it across the street at Heritage Park.

I remember high cotton when I was a kid and cotton was picked by hand, but all our cotton down here has been genetically engineered to be the proper height for the mechanized pickers. Thanks for the memories. Pappy
