GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - UW-Green Bay has received a very notable gift from a philanthropist in Italy – a 500 pound bust of Leonardo da Vinci.
The white bust was created last year, and it’s still in a crate while campus officials decide where the statue should go.
The donor was said to be well aware of UW-Green Bay, after five groups of students traveled to Florence Italy over the past decade.
Music instructor Sarah Livingston calls the bust “breathtaking.” She tells WBAY-TV she’s excited that the Green Bay campus can share the gift with the community.
Officials expect to unveil the da Vinci bust in August.
