Victory has arrived at Stevenson University. The 12-foot-tall bronze mustang statue was unveiled Wednesday afternoon outside the entrance to Mustang Stadium on the Owings Mills Campus. The statue represents the strength and unity of the entire Stevenson University community and the spirit that drives everything from the institution’s growth to its championship athletic teams.

"This is a significant piece of art, Stevenson's first," said Claire Moore, Vice President for Student Affairs. "It is bronze, representing permancy, strength and endurance. Our mascot, the Mustang, symbolizes passion, energy, and independent spirit. These symbols help define us, and Victory fits Stevenson."

The culmination of a yearlong project by nationally renowned wildlife sculptor Bart Walter, Wednesday’s ceremony was followed by a street fair with food, games, and giveaways to stir excitement for the Mustang men’s lacrosse team’s game against Messiah College. The Mustangs won the game 18-4.

The sculpture was funded by an anonymous challenge grant and the generous support of university Trustees, alumni, parents, and friends. A smaller replica of the sculpture will be installed within the stadium as a spur to Stevenson’s student-athletes as they take the field.

"Victory embodies this university's history of achievement and serves as an inspiration for our future growth and success,” said Kevin ManningPh.D., President of Stevenson University. “This statue is for our entire community, from our faculty and staff, to our students, parents, and alumni. The sculpture represents the pride we all have in Stevenson and all we plan to accomplish in the future.”
