In Peaceful Serenity, a sculpture by Native American artist Allan Houser, Nick Moolenijzer ’17 found on the Dartmouth campus a reminder of his childhood in New Mexico. In this video, Moolenijzer talks about the meaning he finds in Peaceful Serenity and the ways it keeps him connected to his home.

“I think for me, and I think for a lot of other people, there is a very sincere and a very close emotional connection with a lot of the art pieces,” he says. “Having something that you can connect with on an emotional level brings us all closer to campus as a physical space.”
