A student-created sculpture titled "Starlight Heritage," dedicated this past spring in UW-Eau Claire's Centennial Hall, celebrates the long history, the present-day and the future of teacher education at the university.
Art students Catelyn Mailloux and Pheng Vang, along with their mentor, Dan Ingersoll of the art & design department, created the sculpture, which was installed in the new building’s third floor Lantern area.
A sculpture honoring guide and other assistance dogs was commissioned by Katherine Schneider, UW-Eau Claire senior psychologist emerita, and friends in honor of Schneider’s 41 years of partnerships with Seeing Eye dogs. Funded through gifts to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation, the sculpture is located near the Student Success Center on Centennial Hall’s second floor.
Designed and cast by the Randolph Rose Collection of Yonkers, N.Y., the life-size bronze sculpture of a yellow Labrador retriever with harness is titled “Juno” after the initial walk a student takes at guide dog school.
