Look Familiar???

March 15th, 2013 by Jenny Hodge

The photograph below is from the University Archives Photographs Collection, AR-013. It features student working in the Sculpture Lab sometime in the 1960’s. Do any of these students look familiar to you? How about the projects they are working on? Do you have any of your own memories/experiences to share of working in this lab? Can anyone provide a more exact date or even identify the class? Any information regarding this photograph or your experiences in the Art Department in the 1960’s is welcome.

Sculpture Lab

Look Familiar???

The only information we have on this undated photograph from the University Archives is the label “Arboretum”. Who are these two men? What are they looking at? Where in the Arboretum are they? Are they discussing expansion plans for the Arboretum? The Arboretum has grown and changed throughout the years as much as the campus itself.  We would greatly appreciate any information you could provide on this photograph. And if you have a moment stop by and enjoy the gardens and plant collections yourself.
