Prometheus Statue Taken Down

The Prometheus statue in front of the Allen Administration Building was taken down yesterday. This was in part due to the Allen Loop construction project taking place this summer as well as the physical state of the statue.

Donated to the College by the USSR in 1979 as part of the International Special Olympics, the statue has experienced structural decay and has needed additional support to stay upright for the past several years.

The top sections of Prometheus will be stored and the college will work to determine if the statue can be restored and, if so, where on campus it would be placed.
