Moultons Receive Celebration of the Arts Award
The 2013 Governor's Arts Award recipients were the retiring President and First Lady of the University of South Alabama, Gordon & Geri Moulton.  The Moultons have a passion for sculpture and are avid collectors of glass art. In demonstration of their love and support for the visual arts, the Geri Moulton Children's Park sculpture garden was conceived and nurtured to completion. The sculpture park is located on the grounds of the University of South Alabama Women's Hospital. Some of the best known sculptors in the United States created more than 50 life-sized bronze sculptures in the park that provide a tranquil place where children can set aside thoughts of injury and illness, where families can find respite from worry, and where the community can leave behind the stress of everyday life. All of the works of sculpture in the park were donated by patrons. The Moultons' passion for all art forms led them to create the USA Glass Arts program and facility at the University of South Alabama in 2008. This academic program is one of only two such university programs in the Southeast and of only a handful in the country. To read the full article, click here.
