Brown 250+ moment

In 1994, the first WaterFire public art event took place in downtown Providence, with a series of bonfires lighting up the city’s urban rivers. What was planned as a one-time event has since grown into a tradition, with many fire lightings each year. Artist Barnaby Evans, who graduated from Brown in 1975 with a degree in biology and environmental science, created the installation.

Brown 250+ moment

In 1923, Bronze Bruno, the first bear statue on campus, is placed on his base (topped with a piece of the slate rock on which Roger Williams supposedly landed in 1636) at the new Brown Gymnasium. Watching intently are (left to right) Athletic Director Fredrick W. “Doc” Marvel, Class of 1884; Theodore Francis Green, Class of 1887; and Robert B. Jones, Class of 1907. The statue was moved to the College Green area in May 1992, after the closing of Marvel Gym.

Ever true.

A Brown 250+ Moment

With the bronze Bruno statue moved from the former Marvel Gymnasium to the College Green, the new athletic complex was without a mascot. This lack was remedied by the installation of Indomitable, by British artist Nick Bibby, in 2013 on Ittleson Quad near the entrance to the Nelson Fitness Center. The imposing bronze statue towers over visitors to the Quad at 10 feet high (14 with its base).
