LAST WORK HERE: Prof. Avard Fairbanks, who is leaving the University to become dean of the newly created School of Fine Arts at the University of Utah, surveys the last major sculpture study in which he will engage while here. The recently completed work, "Colt Pegasus," was created for the gardens of the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred G. Wilson in Rochester and will be on view to the public at an open house to be held in Prof. Fairbanks' studio, second floor of University hall, from 1 to 5 o'clock tomorrow. The sculpture is now in clay form and will later be cast in bronze and placed on a base of rainbow granite carved in the form of billowing clouds. The elusive steed of the Muses, under Prof. Fairbanks hands, wears a "catch-me-if-you-can-look" and is portrayed taking off into the sky on a flight of fancy. Prof. Fairbanks has been associate professor at the University's Institute of Fine Arts for the past 17 years.
