The Thinker returns to U of L

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Thinker is back home at the University of Louisville after getting spruced up.  The iconic Auguste Rodin sculpture was put back to its place in front of Grawemeyer Hall Tuesday afternoon.

Conservators spent the last two months cleaning it and applied a layered, black over green patina.  

University officials say the Thinker represents what the school is all about.  This is the first large version of the piece.  It is 108 years old and dates to December 25th, 1903.
