Sculpture Commission

The Sweet Briar College Friends of Art board commissioned a site-specific work of art in 2013 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Friends of Art. The piece also marked the dedication of a comprehensive renovation of the College’s Mary Helen Cochran Library, which included the construction of an addition. The library and sculpture were dedicated on Nov. 7, 2014.

After inviting about two dozen artists to submit proposals, the Friends of Art selected alumna and Blue Ridge Architects associate Catherine Peek ’01, who worked with students and a campus committee to realize her vision.
