Easter Island statues known as moai adorn the back lawn and the walking track area of the campus. They are nine ton concrete replicas. Western Wyoming Community College's own Professor Emeritus Charles Love teamed up with local artist Gregory Gaylor to design and carve the mold used to cast them.
The great mystery of Easter Island has been how the Islanders moved the statues from
their remote quarry to the huge ceremonial centers along the coast. Below are some
pictures of the two statues on campus as well as some pictures from Easter Island
taken by Prof. Love.
All the displays at Western are free and open to the public.
