Curator Pick of the Month

Title: The Water Boy (The Alsatian Vintner)
Artist: Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi
Creation Date: 1869
Origin: France
Medium: Bronze

Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904) the creator of this magical bronze sculpture is also the designer behind the Statue of Liberty located in New York City. Unbeknownst to Bartholdi, his sculpture would become one of Drexel’s greatest traditions and one of the collection’s most prized possessions. Though this sculpture was originally designed to be a fountain, the only thing flowing through this sculpture is good luck. Generations of Drexel Students have stopped by The Water Boy to rub his golden toe for good luck and a little extra help to ace their exams. The Water Boy is on display to the right of the marble staircase in the Great Court of Main Building.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
