A first-of-its-kind WuShock sculpture was unveiled and dedicated Sept. 15, at the entry plaza of the Steve Clark YMCA and Student Wellness Center.
The 8-foot bronze sculpture is the creation of local artist Wade Hampton, who worked with WSU Athletics and Clark to capture his vision in sketch form, and local artist Connie Ernatt, who transformed the drawing to the final bronze sculpture.
The sculpture embraces a vintage style of the mascot. After working through several miniature clay models, the team took the design to the Reverse Engineering Lab at National Institute for Aviation Research, where a 3D scan created a full-size computer model of the statue. GoCreate used the model to create a foam replica that Ernatt covered in clay to be bronzed.
