Kenyon on BroadwayThe work of animal sculptor Peter Woytuk '81 hit Broadway in the fall of 2011 with eighteen huge, whimsical sculptures that included bulls, bears, and even two very large pears. The outdoor installation adorned open spaces along the Broadway Mall until April.
The sculptor's work has found its way to Gambier, where a group of sculpted crows are perched on the roof of Ransom Hall, cocking their heads as if to comment playfully on the middle name of Kenyon poet John Crowe Ransom, for whom the building is named.
Many of the pieces for his Broadway exhibit were created in China and Thailand, where Woytuk lives for most of the year. He is considered one of the foremost sculptors of animal forms in the world.
