Shhhhhh: child reading in courtyard

Welcome to “My World”–a sculpture by Seward Johnson on exhibit in the Norman Hall courtyard at the University of Florida College of Education. The painted bronze statue depicts a life-sized (and unnervingly life-like), school-aged girl reading a children’s book. It’s one of 25 statues by Johnson installed last week around the UF campus and Gainesville. The UF Foundation arranged for the public exhibit, which runs through Oct. 14. If you seek a quiet reading partner and locale, check out My World. (Staff photo by Larry Lansford)
