Did you correctly identify the March 6th Mystery Monday photo? We got guesses of Cox Arboretum, Woodlawn Cemetery and Yellow Springs, but none of those were correct. Congratulations to Miranda of Beavercreek for being drawn from the list of correct answers to win 2 free Rapid Fired Pizza‘s!
This is photographer Bill Franz’s favorite spot at the University of Dayton and it holds his favorite sculpture by Hamilton Dixon. It is Serenity Pines, a site that honors those who died while they were students, faculty or staff members at UD.
When someone dies, like UD basketball player Steve McElvene did a few months ago, Hamilton Dixon takes a metal leaf he has crafted to Dayton Stencil. They inscribe the name of the student on the leaf and Hamilton Dixon attaches the leaf to one of his metal trees.
It is only steps away from a busy campus, but Serenity Pines is a quiet, calming place.
So here’s this week’s challenge for you.
Do you know where this photo was taken? If so please enter your answer here:
We’ll choose a winner from those with correct answers to win 2 Rapid Fired Pizza’s. Now with 13 locations and coming soon to Englewood and Beavercreek!
We’ll post the winner next Monday with details about the photo as well as a new photo to challenge your knowledge of the Dayton area.
Thanks for playing and good luck!
