Central Campus; In the Garden, east side of Martha Cook Residence

Lady of the Garden is one of the most empathic public works of art on campus. She is a freestanding human sculpture, with a slightly larger than life anatomical ratio. The dripping bronze molded into her cheeks seems to solidify into tears. Her solemn face beckons one to give her a hug. Hugging the Lady of the Garden felt like consoling a big sister.
