Christian Petersen: Sculptor
Through his twenty-one years as sculptor-in-residence and art faculty member, Christian Petersen (Danish-American, 1885-1961) literally changed the face of the Iowa State's campus. Many decades – and thousands of students, faculty members, administrators, and visitors – later, Petersen's sculptures and murals still adorn the campus and influence the hearts and minds of all who view them. The illustrations in this publication capture the beauty of Petersen’s artistic gift while the text unfolds his personal story and places the sculptor within the context of twentieth-century American art.
