The Duke University economics professor will deliver a lecture titled “What?! You Don’t Take College Sports Seriously?” on Thursday, April 5, at 4:30 p.m. in Twilight Auditorium on the Middlebury campus.

“The cost of big time athletics is growing faster than anything else that universities do,” Clotfelter said.

NEW HAVEN — When sculptor Dennis Sparling started work on his nine-foot-tall sculpture of Leonardo da Vinci, he didn’t expect that one day he’d have to load the 600-pound behemoth onto a trailer and cart it around on a world tour. But, starting next month, Sparling and “Leo” will hit the road for the first leg of their journey.

For the New Haven artist, creating Leonardo has been more than a technical feat — though it did present challenges. Fabricating the sculpture was almost a manifesto.

Clippings: Mishka makes lasting impression

Posted on March 1, 2012 |
By Christian Woodard



When my roommate, Nikhil, announced he was going to Mauritius for three months and asked if I could take care of his dog, I thought immediately of body heat. A 70-pound German shepherd throws off a lot of warmth, and I sleep in a poorly insulated room.

To New Haven sculptor Dennis Sparling, “art is about the mystery of things.”

Sparling, 67, fabricates sheet copper and wire into dynamic sculpture. Last year, Sparling finished work on his 9-foot-tall, 600-pound representation of Leonardo daVinci. The sculpture integrates daVinci’s drawings and paintings with his feats of engineering, architecture, and anatomy – all ranged around the standing patriarch.
