“Human sculptures” dance performance in front of America by Alfredo Halegua. Photograph by Carl Zitzmann, May 6, 1985.

A recently processed addition to the GMU archives includes photographs from GMU’s Creative Services office. These photographs range in date from 1964 to 2007 and consist of negatives, contact sheets, prints, and slides. Subjects cover all aspects of the university including student life, faculty and staff, campus scenes, construction, annual and one time events, classes, and the broader Mason community.

We have scanned and attached metadata to 22 of these photographs focusing on images of sculpture on campus. Sculptures include:  Alfredo Halegua’s America (1970), Lila Katzen’s Untitled (1974), Reinaldo Lopez-Carrizo’s Man Awakening to his Consciousness (1986), Azriel Awret’s Woman in Hammock (1987), Charters de Almeida’s Arch III and Landmark (1991), and Azriel Awret’s Communitas (1992). These images and more can be seen on Flickr at the GMU Archives’ photostream and are included in the updated University Photograph Collection finding aid.
