Have you seen the red and purple cows? If you are just as curious as most of the students on campus, Professor Jerry Hagaman has the answer for you!

When John and Elaine Cathcart read of Jim Collins being commissioned to place painted silhouette sculptures of cows along an Irish roadside, they contacted him about purchasing a few for themselves. It was appropriate, as their home at the time was on the site of the original Mayfield dairy farm and milk house. The Cathcart’s donated the sculptures to Tennessee Wesleyan when they relocated to Memphis.
They also donated the welded steel sculpture ‘Communion’ by Mike Russell that is placed near the entrance to Elliott Hall.
