A Sculpture for Remembrance

A new sculpture graces the entrance of the University of Arizona's Poetry Center, thanks to the talent of artist Kim Seyesnem Obrzut and the generosity of UArizona President Emeritus John P. Schaefer and his late wife, Helen Schaefer, for whom the Poetry Center's building is named. The sculpture, titled Look to the Mesa, is situated under a Texas ebony tree that offers shade on the south side of the Poetry Center breezeway.
