Earlier this year The Drexel Collection was honored to have this resin and graphite sculpture, Ferns, by Stephen Robin donated to the College of Medicine. Stephen Robin's sculptures can be found throughout the east coast with works in Federal Triangle in Washington, DC, The War Memorial in Trenton, NJ, at Tampa International Airport in Tampa, FL and at the Pennsylvania Convention Center here in Philadelphia, PA. Robin's work has been exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions since 1967. Robin received his BFA from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University in 1966 and his MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI in 1968. Ferns is on view in the lower level atrium of the Queen Lane Campus.
Susi Levy, the wife of Stephen Robin, donated this sculpture to Drexel "In loving memory of my Stephen, may his legacy of making the world a more beautiful place liv on through his Ferns. The finest gift is one which helps others live longer and enriched lives. Love, Susi Levy"
