Catch Those Rays While You Can
Indian summer is on the wane. The sculpture "Voyage," by the late famed sculptor and professor of art Richard O'Hanlon (1906-1985), makes an ideal backdrop for studying. Placed between Hertz and Morrison halls in 1961, shortly after the buildings were completed in 1958, the 800-pound bronze piece was a gift of longtime Berkeley supporters and art patrons Ansley and Helen Salz. Native California oaks in Faculty Glade and the Campanile round out this bucolic slice of Berkeley. Daylight Saving Time ends Oct. 30. (Peg Skorpinski photo)
