Quincy University will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the sculpture “Windows to the Future” at a brief rededication ceremony at noon on Saturday, October 26, on the lawn near Willer Hall (20th and Lind).
Created by former QU professor of art, the late Fr. Tom Brown, OFM., “Windows to the Future” symbolizes QU’s successful completion of a five-year campaign in 1994. The campaign project included closing off Lind Street between 18th and 20th.
Constructed by Michelmann Steel Company, the contemporary outdoor sculpture stands 18 feet tall and is made of stainless steel. The openness of the sculpture symbolizes minds open to change for the better. The windows in the sculpture pierce a wall, suggesting focus as it opens to outside possibilities. The walls open out to the nearness of the future. The plaques surrounding the sculpture are inscribed with the donors’ names who gave to the campaign and recognizes their vision, openness and investment in the university.
