Artist and Prep parent Gino Miles (Lillian ‘11) donated the dynamic bronze sculpture now installed in the new lobby area. The piece was commissioned by the Thompson family (Cass ‘08, Leland ‘07) and was put in place over the holiday break. The piece can be moved into different shapes and configurations.
Miles studied extensively in Europe and helped found Italart, a school for American and German students in the Chianti region outside Florence. In the fall of 2003, he opened Sculpture 619, a gallery on Canyon Road. The sculpture is as yet unnamed, and students have been asked for suggestions.
