On Thursday, July 15, Landmarks unveiled its newest acquisition, Sentinel IV by artist Simone Leigh. The bronze sculpture is located in the courtyard of the Anna Hiss Gymnasium, a building that once served as the women’s gym at the center of the university’s Women’s Campus. Its courtyard anchors the sculpture in a welcoming garden that serves as a gathering space which invites reflection and engagement.
