Art of Bronze was honored to work with Gordon State College to create this beautiful bronze red stag elk sculpture for their campus in Barnesville, GA.   This was a special school mascot creation in which Art of Bronze modified the antlers to better represent a red stag.  Red Stags have the largest antlers in the world relative to their body size.

The statue was installed on a concrete stand in front of the Gordon State College Student Activity and Recreation Center.  An engraved plaque sits prominently in the front of the statue which displays the name of the late Alan R. Giles donor to the Memorial Stag statue.

In 2022, Gordon State College revealed the new symbol of strength, pride and the Power of WE theme that will guide the institution’s progress for years to come. The stag, transformed into a spirit mark, is a nod to Gordon State’s rich history and represents the dedication to excellence in academics, inclusion and commitment of the mission.

GSC is a member of the University System of Georgia and was founded in 1852. The college offers 11 four-year degrees and 16 associate-level degrees.  It has a distinctive legacy of excellent scholarship and service with an enrollment of over 3,000 students.

  • Maintenance

    Bronze lasts forever and will never rust, warp or contort. It is an alloy (a mixture of metals) and will oxidize over the years. This process will not hurt the statue. In fact, it can enhance the beauty by turning the statue many wonderful shades of greens, blues, whites and yellows. For the client that wants to maintain the original patina/coloring of their newly acquired work of art, Art of Bronze has several secrets. Every statue and placement will have different requirements and it is best to discuss your needs with Art of Bronze.
