The Sculpture

The sculpture displayed at Evansville Day School was created by sculptor John Matt in 1969.

According to Mr. Matt, the sculpture reflects “how the early years in school gives one the foundation, or the building blocks to bigger and better things in life as symbolized in the asymmetric forms. They fit together, not literally, but in different ways for each person. The three colors are strong and direct.”

When Mr. Matt created the sculpture he chose white as innocence and openness, orange as the struggle and work involved in getting a good education, and red as the fullness of success with honor.
