Would you like fries with that?

If you happened to drive into the UIS campus this week near the Public Affairs Center, you may have noticed something new and very interesting in the landscape. Art collectors extraordinaire, Bob and Ruth Vogele, who have been great supporters of UIS, donated a sculpture by artist John Henry to UIS. It was being installed near the teardrop drive at PAC. It's a wonderful addition to what we hope will eventually be a campus-wide outdoor sculpture garden that will add to our beautiful grounds. This great piece is titled, “Dodger”; but I can't help but think of it as, "French fries." It is always so exciting to add to the artistic culture of a university campus!
