In the media: Da Vinci’s arrival continues to make news

UW-Green Bay’s new Leonardo Da Vinci statue continues to draw media attention, with WBAY, Channel 2 coming to campus Monday (March 11) and NBC 26 today to do a story on the quarter-ton bust. Associate Profs. Sarah Meredith Livingston and Derek Jeffreys spoke with WBAY reporter Kristyn Allen about the statue, which is one of just five worldwide — and the only one in the U.S. — being donated to universities thanks to the Romualdo Del Bianco-Life Beyond Tourism Foundation. The donation represents not just a great international relationship, but also UW-Green Bay’s new 360° of Learning brand — Da Vinci was the quintessential Renaissance Man, excelling across disciplines, and UW-Green Bay is known for its multifaceted approach to learning. By this morning (Tuesday, March 12), the Associated Press had picked up the story, as well. A sampling of press coverage is as follows, along with our original University news story:
