Five Angel Musicians complement Storer Hall, trumpeting the home of music at Kenyon College from their pedestals on the lawn. Each unique character, drawn from images from classical legends, brandishes their own instrument against the backdrop of the sky. Carl Emil Milles was a sculptor best known for his large-scale fountains and aquatically themed work. His fountains are monumental, combining scale, water effects, and intriguing figures. Often, Milles took influence from Nordic imagery and classical legends.
