Professor Allison Baker (studio art), and studio art majors Michael Finch, Janell Hammer, Emily McKenzie, and Andi Haus installed Prof Baker's new monumental public sculpture at Franconia Sculpture Park. 

Professor Baker, Michael Finch, Janell Hammer, Emily McKenzie, and Andi Haus spent three and a half months constructing and installing the massive, monumental public sculpture.

The sculpture is 16 feet by 15 feet and weighs over 7,000 pounds with an additional 10,000 pounds of concrete footers buried under the sculpture.

The creation of this sculpture was supported in part by a Minnesota State Arts Board Grant.
