Snippet: 
A sculpture Russell Day once kept on his back deck now has a place of honor in Everett Community College’s Whitehorse Hall.  Day, a 103-year-old former Everett Community College art instructor, joined more than 75 people May 27 in Whitehorse Hall to celebrate the installation of his untitled 238-pound Blenko glass and concrete sculpture. The sculpture, created by Day in 1955 and donated to the college in 2015, was painstakingly restored by retired EvCC art instructor Lowell Hanson and installed with the assistance of retired photography instructor Lloyd Weller, 3D design instructor Julie Berger and studio arts technician Miles Labitzke.
