Since Esme Kenney's death in 2009, a project was mobilized to create a memorial sculpture that commemorates the School for Creative and Performing Arts student's life. Jessie Henson, a New York-based artist originally from Cincinnati, was selected to create the memorial, and a great deal of fundraising and effort went into the completion of Stardust, a metal and blown glass phenomenon that is suspended in the third floor atrium of the new SCPA.
