Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts has acquired a sculpture created by the late David A. Ludwig, an artist who taught at Saint Vincent.

Natalie J. Woodruff, an art education major from Ringoes, New Jersey, and a former student of Mr. Ludwig, poses with the new acquisition which will hang in Headmasters Hall at Saint Vincent.

The work, “Structure 2314,” was purchased by Fr. Rene M. Kollar, O.S.B., dean of the School, at a memorial exhibition at the Greensburg Art Center.

“Mr. Ludwig began his career as a painter and slowly evolved from two-dimensional color field paintings on canvas to three-dimensional wall reliefs or structures constructed of plywood,” Fr. Rene said. “His work as a model builder for an architecture firm in Philadelphia had a major impact on his working method as well as on the direction his work took.”

Mr. Ludwig was an instructor of drawing, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design at Saint Vincent until his death on January 23, 2011 at the age of 64.
