The Apple Sculpture

If you’re looking for something unique, you should check out The Apple Sculpture located on campus. This sculpture was developed as a way for students to express their thoughts and their feelings, and of course, their artistic abilities. Students give voice to their freedom of expression by writing or drawing their ideas on the sculpture.

The Apple Sculpture changes regularly, and it’s something that you’re going to want to check out, even if you’re not interested in drawing or writing on it for yourself.

Even though it’s only been around since 2013, the Apple Sculpture is something that interests everyone on campus. It’s constantly being painted and repainted. Don’t be offended if your message doesn’t stick around long, nothing ever does. It’s not a testament to you or your message, but simply to the number of people who want to share their message or their art. The Apple Sculpture is all about having fun.

“The overwhelming positive quality about the town of Clarion, the college, and the people therein remains the steadfast spirit and kindheartedness of the folks that live and work in western Pennsylvania. They are the salt of the earth, rightfully proud, hard working and…God’s special people.” Louis B. Dean, Jr.
