to unveil fossil wall
sculpture this week
An official unveiling of the Dunn-Seiler Fossil Wall Sculpture will be held Wednesday at 10 a.m., at the museum in the Department of Geosciences, Hilbun Hall.
The event is being held on the first ever U.S National Fossil Day.
The museum welcomes its new fossil wall sculpture as a collaborative effort between the Departments of Art, Geosciences, and Landscape Architecture. The project became a reality with funding support through the MSU Public Artist Incentive Program of the Office of the President.
Art professor Robert Long worked closely with Renee Clary, geosciences assistant professor and museum director, and Bob Brzuszek, landscape architecture associate professor, in the design and development of a multi-paneled wall sculpture that reflects the Cretaceous landscape revealed in rocks and fossils surrounding the MSU campus. The sculpture will be on permanent display at the entrance to the Dunn-Seiler Museum.
