Michael Pucker (left) is a law partner of Wabash's Chariman of the
Board, Stephen Bowen. On Sunday, Pucker honored their friendship by
donating a painting by Holocaust survivor Samuel Bak to Wabash's
permanent collection in honor of Bowen and their years of friendship.
The painting was made in 1999 and is titled Creation. Dean of the
College Gary Phillips says the painting "asks us to consider the
relationship between creation and destruction. He [Bak] asks us to
imagine a world where the divine is present only in absence."
