Video: The Phoenix (sculpture) has landed

The introduction to the new sculpture on the Green Bay Campus, “Phoenix Rising,” located at the Cofrin Library entrance, will be Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 3:30 p.m. Vice Chancellor Eric Arneson, student leaders and artist Carl Vanderheyden are on the short program to speak about the sculpture. Refreshments will be provided and all are welcome to attend.

First-year students started a new tradition at UW-Green Bay, taking a freshman photo with the sculpture.

See the interview with Vanderheyden and what inspired him during completion of the 13-foot steel and stainless steel creation.
