The Kent Four
 
Background – 
 
In 1971 School of Art faculty member Alastair Granville-Jackson created “The Kent Four” sculpture.  It was one of the first art memorials to commemorate the four students who died on May 4, 1970.  The four hollow arms of the orange metal sculpture were intended to project live flames.  About his work, Professor Granville-Jackson said:  “After considering the manner of death, four rifle barrels, I took these symbols of destruction and turned them into four new emblems for the viewer to ponder.”
