The Sculpture Garden

Mission: The Sculpture Garden will be a place for the University and the broader community to experience student and professional works.  It will be a space where people can linger and enjoy diverse works of art that interact with the surrounding environment.  It will be a special experience that will educate and inspire greater artistic awareness.

Location: Between Blessing Hall and Millis Gym, with pieces continuing throughout the hillside.

The figures illustrate the overlap of civilizations through time and discuss the nature and inevitability of change in society.
