Don’t lose your head

Photo of the Week
Fallen Dreamer sculpture
Craig Chandler | University Communication and Marketing

Fallen Dreamer, the disembodied sculpture residing outside Sheldon Museum of Art, gets a fresh coat of wax from Rob Jensen of Jensen Conservation Services. Sculpted by Tom Otterness in 1995, the bronze artwork has graced the museum’s entrance ever since.

“I like the idea that we only have a partial memory of the past,” Otterness once said. “You get a fragment, and you never know the rest of the sculpture.”
