Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sculptures

​This sculpture, located at the entrance to the Path of Honor, was placed in memory of E. Hadley Stuart, Jr., who died in 2009 at the age of 92. The bronze sculpture, by LaVita, Colo., artist Joan Hanley, depicts Mr. Stuart throwing a ball for his golden retrievers Kari and Kinsey.

​The sculpture is in memory of Lindsey Arensmeier, a client of the VTH who lost her life to breast cancer. "From the beginning our wishes were that this sculpture represents the bond between a pet and its owner - a bond that in the case of Lindsey and Maggie was unmatched," said Lindsey's mother, Sharon Kahn. The sculpture is the work of Loveland, Colo. artist Jane DeDecker.


​When only a few months old, Primrose's right hind leg was severely mauled by dogs. The leg had to be amputated. A prosthesis was developed to enable her to live a full life in the mountains of Colorado. The sculpture is the work of artist Dawn Weimer of Loveland, Colo.

​Check-Up pays tribute to Dr. Wendell Nelson, former director of the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Dr. Nelson had 38 years of distinguished service and served as director of the VTH from 1990 until his retirement in 2003. The sculpture is the work of artist Carol Cunningham of Estes Park, Colo., and was unveiled on Jan. 9, 2004.

​Another Filly to Train was placed at the entrance of our hospital in the fall of 1998. This sculpture, by artist Brenda Longworth of Berthoud, Colo., was selected by popular vote of faculty, staff, and students to be the first life-size bronze sculpture on the grounds of the VTH.
