Be a Part of Sculpture with Purpose™
Sculpture with Purpose Stencil

You may have noticed the Sculpture with Purpose™ stencils popping up across campus. These stencils mark the spots where a sculptural bike rack may be placed as IPFW celebrates its 50th anniversary. Two of those spots will be holding sculptures sponsored by IPFW staff and faculty. Georgia Wralstad Ulmschneider is sponsoring one in memory of her parents and Karen Burtnette is sponsoring one in memory of her late ex-husband and father of their two children.


You, too, can join Ulmschneider, Burtnette, the Alumni Association, the Division of Continuing Studies, Indiana--Purdue Student Government Association, and more than 30 other individuals and businesses who have signed on to be a part of the action. With 36 of the 50 sculptures sponsored, there are only 14 more sculptures available! For information on IPFW Sculpture with Purpose and sponsorship opportunities, visit the website or email Irene Walters, or Ruth Stone,
