First Statue Donated

"Norm Feeding the Chickens" was unveiled at a dedication ceremony in the fall of 2013.

Dr. Faller spent much of his adult life as a pathologist, but as a child he admired the artistic ability of a great uncle who was a sculptor. After he retired he decided to pursue his lifelong interest in art. At one time he'd thought about going into forestry (Dr. Borlaug did his undergraduate work in forestry). Faller also is interested in soil and water quality. All these interests drew him to Dr. Borlaug who spent his life working to improve the health of individuals through increased food security. Healthy water and soil are part of this equation. Click here to learn more about Dr. Faller.
