sculpture called Bird of Prey, created by Michael Tracik of Jurassic Park fame
and donated to Sherman College by Reggie Gold, went on public display this month
at the Spartanburg Science Center in downtown Spartanburg.
The raptor was installed in the lobby area of the east wing of the new
Cultural Center to greet visitors and point the way to the Science Center on
the second floor. The Bird of Prey is on permanent loan from Sherman College to
the Spartanburg Science Center.
Thousands of school children on day trips to the center will see the sculpture
and perhaps get their first exposure to the word chiropractic and the name of
the only chiropractic college in the state of South Carolina -- Sherman College
of Straight Chiropractic.
The college thanks the Sherman College Alumni Association which funded the cost
of moving and installing the sculpture. “We see this as a great opportunity for
the Sherman College name to be out in the community and wanted to help make this
project happen,” said association president Alan Brewster of Passaic Park, NJ.
“I can’t wait to travel back to Spartanburg and visit the Science Center to see
the raptor.” Brewster, of course, will be in town for Lyceum next May.
Many alumni and friends of the college will take the opportunity to see the
raptor when attending Sherman College CE and graduation events. The Science
Center is within walking distance of the downtown Marriott Hotel where special
functions for both
November and May Lyceum are held.
