   SPARKS , Nev . ( April 14 , 2022 )
   On April 18 , 2022 , at 2:00 pm , the City of Sparks will dedicate a new Pet Memorial at the Sparks Marina Park . The memorial , designed for the community to honor lost animals , is located on the south side of the marina adjacent to the dog park and includes a newly installed city art piece engraved with an original poem . Pet owners are encouraged to attach pet collars and tags in remembrance of their lost pets .
   Last year the city held an open call for original poems about a loss of a pet to be engraved into the large steel structure . The winning poem by Stacy Gnall was selected from 33 submissions . A panel of local literary experts including poets , authors and instructors selected the top three poems , and Ms . Gnall’s poem titled “The Present , ” was chosen as the winner by a public vote . The poem is the first piece of writing commissioned by the City of Sparks , and its dedication aptly coincides with National Poetry Month .
   Ms . Gnall is the author of the poetry collections
   Dogged
    ( winner of the Juniper Prize for Poetry from the University of Massachusetts Press , 2022 ) and
   Heart First into the Forest
    ( Alice James Books , 2011 ) . A finalist for the Georgia Poetry Prize , her work has appeared in
   Pleiades
    ,
   Massachusetts Review
    ,
   New American Writing
    , and
   Third Coast
    , among other outlets . She currently lives in Sparks and teaches at the University of Nevada , Reno . The commission for her poem was donated by the Pyramid Veterinary Hospital .
    The structure was designed by Paul Frenkel , a local draftsperson and City of Sparks volunteer . It was fabricated by local artist Jeff Schomberg , whose “Believe , ” “Love , ” and “Home” structures can be seen at Reno City Plaza , Renown Medical Center , and Greater Nevada Credit Union Field , respectively .
   “Most of us can relate to the hardship of losing a pet , ” said Francine Burge , City of Sparks Special Event Supervisor and staff lead on the project . “We feel this important project helps the community honor and remember their beloved relationships while also showcasing art in a unique way . The project came together beautifully . ”
