Examples noted include: Seff Weidl, “The Philosopher” (thin figure peering down); Sasson Soffer, “Midmien” (geometric loops); Morris Brose, “Sentinel II” (squared interpretation of a human body); Oskar Stonorov, “Dancing Maidens” (young female dancers in movement); Robert Schefman, “In Lieu” (huge abstract); G. Alden Smith, “Wings of Learning” (physical interpretation of the learning process); Julius Melchers, “Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, Rene Robert Sieur de LaSalle, Pere Jacques Marquette, Father Gabriel Richard” (important Michigan historical figures); Stanley Dolega, “Untitled” (industrial shape); and Christos Papadimas, “Alexander the Great” (bust of the Macedonian king). Group tours are led by docents from the Women of Wayne Alumni Association.
