HIGH POINT, N.C., April 15, 2009 – The High Point University campus is now home to another magnificent sculpture – “Human Link.” The sculpture, installed April 15, is located in David Hayworth University Park.
The “Human Link,” a 1-ton, 24-foot-tall bronze and steel figure created by renowned sculptor Jon Hair, features three bronze figures helping each other climb a steel helix structure.
The piece shows how three extraordinary students can help each other achieve dreams at HPU and beyond. It serves as a metaphor for students striving to better themselves and their communities. It also exemplifies the benefits of cooperation and the need for human interaction.
