Resuscitate life back to school: Central’s new interim president has a mission

During a quick chat with Lane at the 2022 holiday party organized by the Office of the President, he mentioned that one of his missions as interim president is to bring life back into the school. “One of the things that I really felt lost during the pandemic was to get to be in the same place as other people,” says Lane.

Labor Day, 1993.

Its cuff was lined with rubber, so as not to damage Hammering Man. There, the guerilla art piece stood for two days, a statement against working-class oppression, before it was removed on Sep. 8 by the Seattle Engineering Department. And as the attachment was detached, the legend was born.
