Small-scale replicas of Jacob’s Dream are being sold to commemorate the sculpture’s 10 year anniversary.
The 28 inch tall bronze sculptures can be ordered through the campus store and cost $2,600. The replicas take 12-14 weeks to be made and are produced at a foundry in Bastrop.
Jack Maxwell, sculptor of Jacob’s Dream and professor of art and design, said the replicas have been a long-time dream of his.
“This is a dream that we had from the very beginning,” Maxwell said. “I remember Royce Money, he was president at the time, said something like don’t worry we’ll soon have smaller Jacob’s Dreams. It took some time, but I’m glad we’re doing this now.”
Jill Maxwell, who is Maxwell’s wife, said the response from the several people who’ve already purchased replicas has been positive and that the replicas have fulfilled the desire to take a piece of the ACU community into their homes.
“It was a humbling experience to make [Jacob’s Dream], but to see it come to fruition was incredible. It means a lot to us that it has become a place that people find peaceful and I just think that the idea of commemorating the anniversary is quite important to a lot of people,” Jill said.
Maxwell will be presenting about the inspiration behind Jacob’s Dream at this year’s Summit on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. at Jacob’s Dream.
