Bridge Over Troubled Waters

Don Drumm, Sculptor

A 14-foot Don Drumm sculpture on the Kent State University campus, in the line of fire at the time of the shootings on May 4, 1970, was pierced by a bullet. Drumm, who was called in during the investigation to help verify the direction from which the shot was fired, decided that the damaged sculpture should not be repaired, and that summer he built a memorial at Bowling Green State University, using the same metal that he had used for the Kent piece. The new work was titled "Bridge Over Troubled Waters"
