April 9, 2014 7 AM

Stevenson University’s Mustang Stadium will boast a new addition when a specially commissioned, bronze mustang sculpture, named Victory, is unveiled on Wednesday, April 23 on the University’s Owings Mills campus, 11005 Owings Mills Boulevard, Owings Mills, MD 21117.

The unveiling of the 12-foot-tall statue culminates a yearlong project by nationally renowned sculptor Bart Walter. The statue will represent the strength and unity of the entire Stevenson community and the spirit that drives everything from its growth to its championship athletic teams. A smaller replica of the sculpture will be sited within the stadium as a spur to Stevenson’s student-athletes as they take the field.

“Stevenson will be proud to showcase one of the first major art pieces currently on display in the Owings Mills area,” said Kevin J. Manning, Ph.D., Stevenson University President.

The project was funded by an anonymous challenge grant and the generous support of Trustees, alumni, parents, and friends. The campaign was successfully led by co-chairs Lisa Barnhill, member of the President’s Advisory Council; Anna Smith, Trustee; and Bonnie Allan ’71, Past President of the Stevenson Alumni Association Board.

The event will begin with a dedication ceremony at 4:30 p.m., followed by a street fair at 5 p.m. that will include food, games, and giveaways. Stevenson’s men’s lacrosse team will then take on Messiah College at 6 p.m.

Stevenson University, known for its distinctive career focus, is the third-largest independent undergraduate university in Maryland with more than 4,400 students pursuing bachelor’s, master’s, and adult bachelor’s programs at locations in Stevenson and Owings Mills.
