Sculpture at Albertus Magnus College
June 19th, 2018
The sculpture aims to bring alive the Dominican tradition and, in particular, the namesake of the college, Albert the Great. His statue is a single caryatid supporting the entrance canopy. He was one of the first influential religious teachers in medieval times to leave the monastery and travel throughout Europe. His image as a walking column expresses his revolutionary spirit, how he was a pillar of the church who moved the church with him.
Inside the atrium, one is surrounded by a frieze of letters which through their scale become part of the architecture.
