Christ Arisen statue

Christ Arisen

Artist: Norman Christianson
Dedicated: Oct. 21, 2002

Located west of the Varsity Theatre, just north of Wisconsin Avenue, Christ Arisen features Christ with his arms down and extended in an open, loving gesture. The statue was a gift to Marquette University from Dr. and Mr. Leslie Webber and Family, in loving memory of their son and brother Richard (1962–1983).

Richard Webber died during his senior year while racing with the Marquette Sailing Team in Lake Michigan. The gift included the statue but also the stained glass windows in the Chapel of the Holy Family in the Alumni Memorial Union and safety equipment for the Sailing Team.
