    A lone pedestrian crosses the Bardeen Engineering Quad last week approaching the “Mananaan” sculpture by Alexander Liberman. Acquired by the university in 1994, the welded steel sculpture sits amid the geometric sidewalks of the quad and is surrounded by green grass, unusual for January. According to the Illinois State Water Survey, the temperature on that day, Jan. 7, reached a high of 49 – the highest temperature so far in 2016.
