The first boulevard sculpture, unveiled on August 28, 2017, recognizes the historical role of industry in Perry's development. Entitled Born of Fire, this eleven-foot aluminum sculpture depicts an elevated crucible supported in mid-air by the stream of molten metal it is pouring. This sculpture is depicted to the memory of Pete Van Kirk, who was not only the owner of Progressive Foundry, but also an active member of the community, known for his generosity and philanthropy.
