Contemplation Garden Dedication

On graduation morning, just before the traditional senior speeches on the library patio, Cushing formally opened its new Contemplation Garden with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Designed by John Kelly ’13 and made possible because of the generosity of the Kelly family, the garden took shape over the course of this year.
The garden, which the Kelly family dedicated in honor of the student body, features carefully placed rocks, bonsai, and sculpture that create a serene space for members of the Cushing community to reflect, wonder, and dream. Indeed, the space is so lovely that it has inspired the creation of a beautiful glass sculpture by Alex O'Neill '14 and Arkady Baltser '17.
We are thrilled that the vision and dreams of one Cushing student could be brought to life and will be enjoyed by Penguins for generations to come.
