Wildlife Dioramas by Well-Known Artist Carl Gawboy
Successfully Removed from
UMD Life Science Building Renovation Project


The Three Paintings Remain Intact

The three wildlife dioramas featuring paintings by well-known local artist and UMD alumnus Carl Gawboy have been successfully removed intact from the UMD Life Science Building.

The three dioramas have been crated and placed in storage until an appropriate new home for them is found.

The $15.2 million renovation of the 38 year-old UMD Life Science Building was kicked-off in a celebration ceremony held on the campus today. The building is set to open Fall Semester 2007.
