Sculpture dedication outside P.E. Center
“An American Dream,” a bronze sculpture by Wayne Southwick, will be dedicated Jan. 15, at 11:30 a.m., in a ceremony on the east side of the P.E. Center, where it will be permanently displayed.

The 9-foot-tall sculpture is of a young woman and young man playing basketball—and the woman is scoring. The “dream” is about the hope for equality for women in sports as well as the realization of men’s activities and ambitions.

Southwick, former chief of orthopaedic surgery at the Yale University School of Medicine, began studying sculpture in the early 1980s.

Southwick will be on hand for the dedication, as well as the donors, James Funk (’41C, ’44M), a retired orthopedic surgeon, and his wife, Florrie. The Funks are longtime Emory benefactors and were major contributors to Miller-Ward Alumni House.
