Knowledge. Inspiration. Understanding.
Wood Reliefs by John Henry Peters

In January 2010, the library celebrated the installation of a set of three wood reliefs -- Knowledge (walnut), Inspiration (mahogany), and Understanding (maple) -- created by John Henry Peters ('76), member of the Augustana art faculty.

The library is grateful to Elizabeth Balcer for the generous gift in memory of her husband, Charles Balcer, which made this art commission possible. Charles was Augustana President from 1965-1980 during which time John Peters was an Augustana student. While a student, John's work study job was in the library.
