Inscription.  Frank Hayden, one of Louisiana's most acclaimed sculptors and a Southern University professor of Fine Art, was an inspiring artist who created work that ranged from the monumental to the intimate. His bronze and wood sculptures have an aesthetic quality of simplicity, unity and order, and often expressed his intense spiritual devotion through religious imagery. The landscape of Baton Rouge in testament to his strong influence to the artistic community with the many commissioned sculptures in public spaces such as the Downtown Baton Rouge River Center Campus. His work may also be seen at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum.
