Numa Society

Numa statue

On a gorgeous, breezy afternoon in April 2010, UAFS and the Fort Smith community were first introduced to Numa, a 15-foot, 2,000-pound bronze sculpture commissioned with funds from estate gifts made by Pearl D. Raney and Sally McSpadden Boreham.
 
Created by renowned sculptor Jon Hair, Numa is intended not only to serve as a dramatic embodiment of the University’s spirit and culture, but also as a showpiece and symbol for the Greater Fort Smith community, to which UAFS owes so much gratitude for more than eight decades of support.
 
While Numa may be the first major commissioned outdoor sculpture on the UAFS campus, he won’t be the last. The UAFS Foundation created the Numa Society to help raise funds for additional pieces. Fifty charter members are invited to give $3,000 each (or pledge $3,000 over three years) to be used for commissioning additional pieces of sculpture.
 
As a commemorative gift, charter members will receive one of only 50 limited-edition, numbered bronze maquettes—miniatures of Numa on black granite bases. Contact the Foundation at 479-788-7020 or foundation@uafs.edu to learn more.
