After a two-month absence, The Thinker has been returned to the University of Louisville campus.

The 108 year old bronze sculpture by French artist Auguste Rodin was taken off its pedestal in front of Grawemeyer Hall for the first time since it was installed in 1949 so conservators could clean it and apply a new patina.

The project, which includes a new pedestal, was funded with federal money secured for improvements around Grawemeyer Hall.
