3 Shaffer, Owen Verne "The River" Sculpture: Jerry Sveum stopped by the Information Desk with a sign for HPL's 'The River' sculpture outside, created by O.V. Shaffer. He will bring in two smaller signs to place by each of our two sculptures - the smaller 'The River' in the Janesville Room and the other one on a white cube next to the Woodruff Training Lab. The sign includes a QR code which will provide maps, info about the piece, and a YouTube link to Shaffer - now in his 80's - describing the particular piece.
