LEAP Day comes once every four years, and if your organization is named “LEAP,” you want to make the most of it. So we did.
We began by taking our quadrennial “LEAP Day” shot.
For each LEAP Day shot, we take a photo in a different spot, and this year was at the CHSS Water Wall. This is a nice spot, because the LEAP Ambassadors contributed financially to the creation of this space several years ago and because Jesus Moroles, the artist who created the space, is one of our favorite artists, as the photos from NW Arkansas, Houston, Lubbock, Birmingham, and Huntsville below attest:
Here’s hoping for many more LEAP Day shots, and many more visits to Moroles’s sculptures!
