Order Lion Shrine bricks now for fall installation

Lion Shrine Bricks
Lion Shrine bricks form a 'pathway to the future.'
5/6/2013 —



The Penn State New Kensington Office of Development is taking orders for engraved bricks for the Nittany Lion Shrine on campus. Orders placed by June 30 will be installed by fall in time for the campus' Fall Festival.

The bricks make excellent graduation gifts. Parents and spouses of new graduates can leave a legacy for them and build a path to the future with an engraved brick that leads to campus' Lion Shrine. Penn Staters also can give their spouses and parents a big "thank you" that will last forever.

The special bricks form the border of the herringbone-style pathway on the right and left side of the shrine. Engraved bricks replace plain bricks on an ongoing basis. More than 200 of the 1,200 bricks in the two pathways have been engraved. The Heinz Warneke sculpture sits on a natural monolithic sandstone block in a cove of spruce trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, seasonal plants, and perennials. The base of the shrine is surrounded by flagstone slabs filled in with other ornamental grasses.

Bricks can be purchased in two sizes: 8 x 4" for $75; 8 x 8" for $150.

To order a brick, contact Donna Speer, director of development, 724-334-6057, dms46@psu.edu
