Warricks Transformation
  • Warrick's "Transformation"

A sculpture by UALR professor Michael Warrick was unveiled today at UAMS' Rockefeller Cancer Research Center at a ceremony honoring the late Sen. Jerry Bookout of Jonesboro. "Transformation" is installed in the Bookout Translational Research Center on the fourth floor of the cancer center.

Bookout, who had a 34-year career in the state legislature, was treated for lymphoma at the cancer center. He died in 2006. The state contributed $36 million to the construction of the new cancer center, which matched privately raised funds.

I've got a question in to UAMS about who commissioned the work — UAMS or the Bookout family.
