The pieces on the Asa Packer campus in Lehigh University Art Galleries’ outdoor sculpture collection have been added to the interactive campus map.

Step outside Lehigh’s Alumni Memorial Building and onto Leadership Plaza, and you’re greeted by a bronze statue of Asa Packer with his walking stick and hat. It’s not just a nod to the university’s founder, it’s one of over 50 outdoor sculptures in the collection of the Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) spread across Lehigh’s three campuses.

Packer’s statue, created by Czech Republic native Karel Mikolas, is also one of many that can take visitors on an international artistic journey—even without leaving the Alumni Memorial Walkway.
