PRLog - Jan. 30, 2013 - ST. CHARLES, Ill. -- Saint Charles, IL - St. Vincent College (http://www.stvincent.edu/) and sculptor Guy J. Bellaver (http://bellaverstudios.com/) began a conversation about a sculpture commission for the Herman and Sis Dupré Science Pavilion (http://www.stvincent.edu/Alumni_and_Friends/Giving_to_SVC/Giving_Opportunities/Science_Center/)

as a result of Bellaver’s retrospective exhibition at the College entitled - The Creative Thread – From Fibonacci to Fermi.  Says Bellaver, “I have always been fascinated by the relationship of positive to negative space – the energy of their interaction, and my art.  In fact, the relationship of art to the STEM disciplines has informed my artwork since my first, extremely geometric stone sculptures.  I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to develop this sculpture for St. Vincent.”

Bellaver expects to have the sculpture completed by March, 2013, so that it will be sited for the official dedication of the building.
