BREAKING NEWS: The statues are gone!

While running a very important errand on campus last week, I discovered that the giant statues in front of Marquand, the ones that we have all come to know and love, are gone and have been replaced with a plastic, white picket fence. After some brief research, it turns out that the statues were on lease to the University.

Here are the photos:





Before these statues had graced Marquand's front lawn, the Picasso statue that now sits behind Spelman used to live here. It was moved with a truck a few years back.

  2. I'm not so upset. I remember when the installation of those statues caused as much gnashing of teeth as you're experiencing now.

    Also: one of my fondest memories of campus life was when someone erected (single entendre) a giant snow-penis in front of that Picasso. I find it ironic that it's actually supposed to be a woman.
