Medical Campus; Friends Meditation Garden (north side of Towsley Center)
Gift of Dr. Harry Towsley. In 2001, the original Towsley Garden was remodeled into a meditation garden, with the sculpture placed as one focal point. A new plaque was also installed which describes the creation of the original Towsley Garden. Mills was a visiting professor and artist-in-residence at U-M in 1980. He also sculpted the bust of Jean Paul Slusser, which stands outside the Slusser Gallery in the Art and Architecture Building.
