  • Alma Mater sculpture restoration more extensive than originally thought

    Conservation of Sculpture and Objects Studio staff member Robert Zarycki uses the laser to clean the arm of "Labor" -- the sculpture on the left behind Alma Mater. ("Learning" is shown at right.) Further study of the statue revealed that interior damage was worse than first thought, which will lead to a higher repair cost and keep the statute from returning to its pedestal at Green and Wright streets in time for graduation.
