The Gift Al LaVergneLast year, WMU professor of art Al LaVergne received a Fulbright award that allowed him to spend 10 months at Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria. In addition to research and teaching, LaVergne created The Gift, a 14 foot steel fabricated sculpture inspired by Nigerians' passionate love of family. Join the artist as he discusses his work and the close connection he developed with his Nigerian colleagues.
