Two maquettes for a public art project will on view in the Mendel lobby this weekend. The maquettes were created by designers Adrian Stimson, Jean-Sebastien Gauthier and Ian (Happy) Grove for a public sculpture to be installed next year at River Landing.

The maquettes will be displayed at the Mendel from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, December 13; and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15. The artists will be available to speak with the public from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, December 14.
