Sculpture Commission

The board of the Friends of Art of Sweet Briar College has commissioned a site-specific work of art to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Friends of Art and to mark the dedication of a new addition to, as well as the comprehensive renovation of, Sweet Briar College’s Mary Helen Cochran Library, scheduled for completion in autumn 2014. It is anticipated that the library and sculpture will be dedicated Nov. 7, 2014. For occasional updates on the project’s progress, see the Friends of Art group page on Facebook.
