UM Bicentennial

Faculty Women’s Club Sculpture

Quartet sculpture
Quartet was placed on the northeast side of the UM Michigan League in 2017.

In celebration of the University of Michigan Bicentennial in 2017, and the Faculty Women’s Club Centennial in 2021, the Faculty Women’s Club dedicated a sculpture to honor University of Michigan Women, and the Faculty Women’s Club.

The bronze sculpture that we commissioned, Quartet, symbolizes our FWC fellowship and gathering together in a community to support one another. It commemorates our past, and expresses our hope for the future. It celebrates the roles that women have played in the University of Michigan’s history, and will continue to play in years to come. Quartet‘s artist is Jens Zorn; Joshua Blackmon did the fabrication.
