In this presentation, Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park director Jeff Stevenson shares clippings from a 1985 interview of Bill Dodd, Director of Advancement, conducted by Dr. Leo Goodman-Malamuth, President of GSU and host of the program "GSU Views" on the GSU cable TV channel. In this interview Bill Dodd recounts the early history of the sculpture park and some of the early sculptures, and the inaugural 1979 show: The Sculptor, The Campus, and The Prairie which gained national recognition. Historic video is interwoven with contemporary images of the Sculpture Park. This video was made to promote the William Dodd Memorial Prairie Restoration Fund, established by the University Foundation in 2014. The Fund made the GSU Butterfly Ranch possible.
