Rice dedicates Archer

Members of the Rice community gathered in the outdoor area between Brockman Hall for Physics and George R. Brown Hall Feb. 24 for the dedication of Archer, a new permanent installation by acclaimed American sculptor John Henry. Joined by Alison Weaver, executive director of Rice’s Moody Center for the Arts, Henry was on hand to discuss his bright red, 14-foot-tall aluminum sculpture, which cut an imposing figure in the late afternoon winter sun. The acquisition of Henry’s work was made possible through a gift to Rice by Houston arts patrons Leslie and Brad Bucher, who graduated from Rice in 1969 and 1965, respectively. For more information on public art at Rice, visit http://publicart.rice.edu.
