"Abandoning That Which Once Defined" — Austin Martin, 2011

Plaque near the giant hobo knapsack sculpture.

 

There is an interesting sculpture of a giant knapsack on a stick, stereotypical of hobos' knapsacks, lying on the ground abandoned off to one side of the Science building. It does seem to make a point about "abandoning that which once defined".

A very nicely done memorial to the University of Arizona Alumni who were killed in World Wars I and II, Korea and Vietnam is in a rotunda on the bottom floor of the Student Union Building.

Those are beautiful images of the memorials, Tim. I like the Austin Martin plaque and hobo knapsack sculpture, too.
