This sculpture was started by artist, Avard Fairbanks. After his death on New Year’s Day in 1987, it was finally completed by his son Grant. The pedestal reads: “This piece is dedicated to the spirit of Matilde R. Wilson who through her enduring legacy, the Matilde R. Wilson Fund, has given wings to our dreams.”
Pegasus was installed in 2007. It is made of bronze and measures 77 inches tall.
