"Moses" Arrives At Creighton University

Creighton University unveiled a new piece of art on Friday. The "Moses" sculpture was donated to the school by 1979 graduate Doctor Wayne Yakes and his family.

It depicts Moses holding the 10 Commandments and stands on the north side of the Ahamson Law Center.

University president Father John Schlegel says the school is grateful for the donation.

"Father Schlegel said, 'Well I want it in front of the law school. I want our faculty and students to know where all law comes from,' -- that's why it has its teeth," says donor Dr. Yakes who also talked about his mother. "Frances Ann, always dreamed of me attending a Catholic medical school rather than a state school. Creighton allowed her to realize that dream for me and educated me as a physician with Catholic moral underpinnings."

The sculpture was created by international renowned artist Gib Singleton and joins the "Crucifix" which is permanently displayed on the south side of the student life center.
