Stump Speeches ◙ Sculpture Opening

“Everyone that sow the seed and harvest the field celebrate together.”

~Zelmyra Fisher

Sculpture alum, William W. Kimmell ’15 will be formally revealing his latest sculpture this Wednesday at 1:30 in front of the Art building.

Will’s sculpture features a tree stump surrounded by a beautiful array of multi-colored stained glass leaves that illuminate when met with sunlight. We’ll be posting more details about Will’s piece and how it came to be on display in front of the Art building soon, so stay tuned.

See all the details of the event below:

COME JOIN the Community at the opening of the new, public sculpture on campus!!!! The work, “Communal Narrative,” is designed as a shared space that encourages personal reflection and public speaking. Located outside the art building (Hege-Cox), everyone is invited and welcome to use the space whenever they need to sit or speak.

STARTING AT 1:30 SHARP, COMMUNITY MEMBERS WILL USE THE SPACE FOR PUBLIC STUMP SPEECHES!

STUMP SPEECHES (literally speaking from a stump) are a LOST TRADITION on Guilford campus that democritize the power of the spoken word. Firmly rooted in Quaker practices, stump speeches build community through sharing personal experiences, promoting discussions, and articulating shared values.
