"This project depicts a personal and historical 'curiosity cabinet' representa-
tion of the University of Florida where I have taught for 25 years. The artwork
incorporates depictions of a collection of artifacts evoking the University's storied
tradition, with objects representing elements of research, study and student life. It
also contains fossil records referring to Florida as place. Additional components
relating to systems of information storage, text and the book are also imbedded
within the artwork. In addition the project conveys my undeniable sentimental
connection to what we know as the 'Gator Nation.' Richard Heipp

Three Way Piece No. 2
Also known as "Archer, 1964
by Henry Moore (1898-1986)
Second floor near circulation desk

Moore, who before his death in 1986 was regarded as the world's
greatest living sculptor, named the sculpture Three Way Piece
No. 2. (It was his second work which allowed for three different
positionings) The subtitle Archer was added later and alludes to
the recoiled tension, like an archer positioned to shoot, suggested
by the work.

Archer was purchased in 1966 for the university's new $2.2
million Graduate Research Library (now Library West). As
director Stanley West observed at the time, "Such a significant art
object will mean many things to many people, but its presence, to
challenge the imagination and intellect of youth, makes its location
in the new library completely appropriate, if not mandatory."
