Clivia Calder Morrison (American, born 1909)
Glazed terracotta
Michigan Avenue entrance to Sarah Langdon Williams Hall

This small yet vibrant glazed terracotta sculpture and fish head fountain spout are part of a garden wall that leads to Sarah Langdon Williams Hall. Completed through the WPA/FAP, the three young girls reading serve as a symbol of education, which is fitting to this once all-female residence hall.
