Photographer Bill Franz of Dayton at Work and Play says, “this is my favorite spot at the University of Dayton and it holds my favorite sculpture by Hamilton Dixon. It is Serenity Pines, a site that honors those who died while they were students, faculty or staff members at UD.
When someone dies, like UD basketball player Steve McElvene did a few months ago, Hamilton Dixon takes a metal leaf he has crafted to Dayton Stencil. They inscribe the name of the student on the leaf and Hamilton Dixon attaches the leaf to one of his metal trees.
It is only steps away from a busy campus, but Serenity Pines is a quiet, calming place. We were surprised at how many of you got this one! Congrats to our randomly drawn winner Youssef from Dayton- watch your mail for your Rapid Fired Pizza certificates!
