  • 'Peace Memorial' returns to Lincoln Hall May 28-29

    Workers next week are expected to return the popular Peace Memorial artwork to prominence in the south courtyard of Lincoln Hall. The concrete bas-relief work, created by Dan Molner, a retired campus landscape architect, was commissioned by the U. of I. Classes of 1918 and 1919 to mark the 50th anniversary of World War I. The 2-ton piece honors soldiers up to the Vietnam War era.
