New Appalachian Sign Plaza: "Founders Plaza"

New Appalachian Sign Plaza: "Founders Plaza"
Status: 
Recently Completed

The site of the Appalachian sign on Hardin Street will be enlarged and updated with brick pavers to create a safer, more welcoming space for visitors and graduates posing for photos.  A dual-sided sign was chosen to allow subjects of photographs to stand on either side, ensuring good quality exposures regardless of sun positioning.  The sculpture of B.B. Dougherty will be relocated to the bordering green space creating a Founders Plaza with lights and electricity.  The plaza may also provide venue space for small outdoor gatherings.
