Honors Sculpture Unveiling
On Sunday, April 28, 2013 from 1:00-3:00 PM, the wonderfully created Honors sculptures that everyone has been talking, about were formally revealed in each of the Honors Halls. Names were voted on earlier that week and were then released during the unveiling of the sculptures. Several students and members of the community went from residence hall to residence hall to view all of the new metal sculptures created by resident artist Robert Barnum and a group of his students. To see more information about the story behind the sculptures, check out the video at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQfB6D9lhzc.
Pickell Hall -“Diakonia” Greek word for service done with a voluntary, willing attitude.
Miller Hall – “Uranus, Cronus” Father and son, though mutual hatred made them come to blows their familial sacrifice was needed for the creation of a beautiful world. Their struggle represents the sacrifices we must all sometimes make for the good of all and our personal success
Ward Hall- “Episteme”
Greek word for knowledge
Henderson Hall – “Prometheus, Atlas, Gaea”
From Prometheus comes the light of mankind and the raising up of our values. Atlas sustains these values as wondrous ideologies and helps up Gaea who represents the life of the student body, striving for greatness, forming an unshakable base for the progress of our program and its students.
Puterbaugh Hall – “Hephaestus, Apollo, Artemis”
Hephaestus is confined to be a cripple but still his works of art and craftsmanship accentuate his determination. He exemplifies the mindset of an honor student. Apollo, gives life as well as music and through his complexity we see the true colors of a diverse and well rounded honors student. In yellow his sister Artemis praises the unknown and the wilds. Our humanity is meaningless in our dreams but from our dreams, from the wilds of our imaginations the truest beauty comes forth. Artemis represents humble nature, conservative action and modesty within creativity.
