George Washington Carver sculpture

Mr. Carver

A life-size sculpture of George Washington Carver was installed this month outside the addition to the Seed Science Center. It was created from artist Christian Petersen's 1949 maquette, completed while Petersen was Iowa State College's artist-in-residence. A to-scale version of the sculpture stands between Carver and Beardshear halls. Photo by Bob Elbert.
