Statue of Our Lady

The highly stylized, 8-foot-high sculpture was commissioned for the religious school under the supervision of the architect who designed a new, modern building for the campus. The school paper forewarned students that the sculpture would be “in the modern design” and reminded them that “the artist is not always a photographer” and that “art must reflect the time in which it is made.”
