Promise/Anthem

Mounted on a wall in the first floor lobby of Wismer Center, Promise/Anthem is by Bucks Country artist George R. Anthonisen. Known worldwide for his sculptures and frescoes, Anthonisen’s works “combine our ancient roots with our recent past, giving validity to the present.” He states as an inspiration for his work, that “beauty exists in both the heavy and the light – they are in agreement and complement each other.” Anthonisen has bequeathed many of his works to the Berman Museum at Ursinus.
