I was an undergrad here at UW in the early 1970's and recently returned to live in Laramie. My memory could be entirely wacked, but it seems like there was some controversy over the Nuclear Family sculpture. Was it stated that nothing more would be added to Prexy's Pasture? I realize the current art pieces are not permanent, but I for one would like to see Prexy's left alone. I appreciate the art but would like to see it elsewhere.
