West Shore Community College plans to install first outdoor sculpture
VICTORY TWP. — The space outside West Shore Community College’s Schoenherr Campus Center will look a bit different starting in late spring.
Installed near the northeast corner of the building will be the college’s first outdoor sculpture — a 14-foot-tall, bronze reproduction and enlargement of an original abstract sculpture by 20th-century artist Manierre Dawson.
This will also be the first large-scale outdoor Dawson sculpture of its kind, said Thom Hawley, WSCC executive director of college relations, who has organized the project. The art piece will become part of the Mason County Sculpture Trail.
Hawley called the sculpture reproduction a “wonderful artistic addition to our campus.”
Dawson was a 55-year resident of Riverton Township, and is considered to be one of America’s pioneers in abstract art.
