Photo: Spike comes home

Posted: August 25, 2013 - 12:11am
Kathy Kolkhorst Ruddy, president of the board of directors of The Whale Project, views the placement of "Spike" with University of Alaska Southeast Chancellor John Pugh and Donald Smith, Director of Labor Relations for the University of Alaska, right, on campus Friday. The bronze statue by R.T. "Skip" Wallen will become the centerpiece in a newly designed courtyard to be completed by October. Spike is a smaller replica of a 26-foot work of art planned for the Juneau Waterfront. The 1/3 life sized model of a humpback whale was displayed in front of the Juneau Arts & Culture Center the past 22 months.  Michael Penn | Juneau Empire
