Bug SculpturesThe bug sculptures created by students in Lander University assistant professor of art Doug McAbee's advanced sculpture class have been installed at the Lander Art Corner, at the intersection of Edgefield Street and Maxwell Avenue, in Uptown Greenwood. McAbee, who said the assignment allowed his students to "stretch their abilities as public sculptors," added that he was "pleased with the skills the students were able to demonstrate."
