Public Art

This week’s public art feature is another piece from Philippi: this time off of Alderson-Broaddus campus. “Apollo” is a piece inspired by Sir Isaac Newton’s quote “I stand on the shoulders of giants,” and the statue was so named to honor the space program. “Apollo” was installed in 1968.”
