SEMINOLE — A seven-foot, bronze Enoch Kelly Haney sculpture was delivered to Seminole State College campus recently and placed on the peninsula of the campus pond near the Roesler Residential Learning Center and the Haney Center. Private funds for the purchase of this artwork were raised through the Seminole State College Educational Foundation.

The sculpture is the artist’s proof of “The Guardian” which sits atop the dome on the Oklahoma State Capitol. The original sculpture was commissioned by the Capitol Preservation Commission in 2000. Haney’s 17-foot tall, 6,000-pound statue of a Native American was placed on the dome in June, 2002.

A former Oklahoma State Senator from Seminole and member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, Haney is an internationally recognized artist whose faithful representation of Native Americans and their culture has been exhibited throughout the world. He currently serves as Chief of the Seminole Nation.

New park benches and the statue are the latest additions to that area of campus as part of efforts to landscape and beautify the park area around the pond.
