The Flame Of 62

The FLAME of 62, an eleven foot tall sculpture designed by Ed Rondeau, a member of the RIC class of 1962. The piece was a gift of the class to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their graduation from the college. Ed volunteered his services as his personal gift to the class and funding was raised to engage the collaboration of two artists who had graduated from the RIC art program in sculpture...Nate Nadeau '04 and Barrett Kern '11. The piece, made of a combination of raw, sheet steel and stainless steel (the flames) was permanently installed in early winter, 2014 and dedicated by the class on April 17, 2015. It stands outside the entrance to the sculpture department in the new ALEX AND ANI ART CENTER.

This was how it all began.
