Sculpture students’ proposal selected for EcoSculpt in Washington Park

“Octopus,” designed and proposed by sophomore sculpture students Tory Kroeger, MacKenzie Recker and Amanda Reiber, was selected as one of the seven works included in this year’s EcoSculpt exhibition in Washington Park. Sophomores Adam Brock and Brad Davis also collaborated on the construction of the sculpture for this three-week exhibition, which continues through April 25th in the park across from Music Hall.
