Brenau will dedicate a new bronze by Jean Westmacott, “Terpsikhore,” in the lobby of the Burd Center at 12:30 p.m., Friday, April 12.
The work was commissioned by Barbara Stockton Perry, class of ’47, and Leeda Stockton Currin, class of ’60, as a way to express their shared passion for Brenau and art. Perry, a former trustee who passed away in early 2016, worked to complete the commissioning of this work with Currin even as she battled terminal cancer.
“Terpsikhore” is named for one of the nine muses in Greek mythology, specifically the Muse of choral song and dancing. Westmacott’s bronze figure depicts a dancer leaning back in mid dance and will be placed on the landing of the stairs entering the bottom floor of Hosch Auditorium.
Any faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend this event.
