   GUTTENBERG — Early in 2019, the Clayton County Foundation for the Future awarded a $1,000 grant for the creation of artwork honoring area veterans. Led by a dedicated group of volunteers, the Clayton County Freedom Rock project has drawn support from veterans and business owners across the county and beyond.

   The artwork is part of a larger project, The Freedom Rock, which is a unique, 99-piece mural that includes one large, painted rock in each of Iowa’s 99 counties. Artist Ray Sorenson completed the painting of Clayton County’s rock, located in Guttenberg, late last summer.
