Strength & Grace
Central campus is home to a new work of art honoring one of the most successful programs in the history of college sports—U women’s gymnastics. The statue stands atop the highest of 10 bronze pillars balanced solidly on three concrete blocks symbolizing the program, the university, and the state. The pillars represent the team’s national championship wins, while the bronze gymnast poised on top is a tribute to all past, present, and future U gymnasts. The piece was created by former assistant coach Jim Stephenson and was donated last summer by Zeke (BA’50) and Katherine Dumke (BS’51).
