UVM Catamount, 1998

Dennis Sparling, UVM Catamount, 1998  
Sculptor Dennis Sparling created a life-size bronze rendering of the UVM mascot - the legendary catamount- a gift of The Class of 1998. This centrally sited work is placed outside of the UVM Bookstore near the information kiosk. The UVM Catamount bears favorable comparison with the Princeton University Tiger and especially the Middlebury College Panther , the latter also dramatically presented perched on a rocky mount. An example of the previously thought extinct Catamount can be seen in the Natural History Collection in the Marsh Life Sciences Building.
