Penn State's class gift committee in seeking an artist wanted a sculpture that was modern and forward-looking -- while they wanted to be respectful of history, they also wanted to look to the future.
The accompanying interpretive sign features a reproduction of the Penn State Alma Mater in Fred Lewis Pattee’s script along with a short history on its origin.
The tradition of class gifts at Penn State began when the class of 1861, at its reunion in 1890, gave the University a portrait of Penn State’s first president, Evan Pugh, which still hangs in the lobby of Old Main. The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts has released its 2014 collectable poster, designed by Lanny Sommese, distinguished professor and head of graphic design in Penn State’s College of Arts and Architecture.
A different technique, laser speckle imaging, produces an image color-coded to indicate volume of blood flow. The sculpture will be dedicated officially after students return to campus for the fall semester. The sculpture will reside at the corner of Curtin Road and University Drive, adjacent to the east side of the Intramural Building. A gift from Penn State's 2013 senior class, the sculpture represents Penn State's iconic theme of 'We Are' and an official unveiling will take place after students return for fall semester 2015.

The mirror-polished, stainless-steel sculpture, a gift to the University from the class of 2013, was designed and created by artist Jonathan Cramer to reflect the spirit and pride of Penn State's famous 'We Are' chant. The location is recognized as a primary gateway to Penn State's University Park campus from the east. Cramer, a Penn State graduate, provided the winning entry in a nationwide competition for the commissioning of the sculpture. The sculpture, created by Penn State graduate Jonathan Cramer, is made of mirror-polished stainless steel and stands 12-feet high.
The description reads “The Class of 2013 and Fred Lewis Pattee…nourishing college spirit and loyalty. Areas of blood vessel dilation (more flow) show up bright red and yellow, while areas where vessels are constricted (less flow) are blue.
An interpretive sign located near the sculpture will be inscribed with the words of Penn State's Alma Mater, reproduced in the style of Professor of American Literature Fred Lewis Pattee's handwriting.
