The beautifully crafted water feature displays six life-sized bronze figures. On the Landis Hall side of the fountain, three female figures symbolize the years as Florida State College for Women. Their attire reflects the college culture during its existence from 1915 until 1947. On the north side are two female figures and one male statue representing the students of today. From the lively sculptures to the serenity of the reflection pool, this monument offers passersby a glimpse of the institution’s past and a look toward the future.
The Legacy Fountain is the creation of Edward Jonas, a painter, and co-founder of the Portrait Society of America, who received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Florida State University in 1971.
