The Sieur du Lhut sculpture, by French artist Jacques Lipchitz, was unveiled in Ordean Court on Nov. 5, 1965.
“It was a cold, chilly, day, and there were many people there in anticipation of the unveiling, because no one had seen the Sieur du Lhut sculpture. It was covered with a big cloth. The time came, and they tugged on a rope, but the cloth was stuck! They had to get long poles to lift the curtain, and when people could see the sculpture, everyone applauded. ” – Bill Shipley ’66, Duluth, Minn., Studio Art and Art History
