“L’Entre Deux Anneaux” Dedication Ceremony


Ambassador Arlette Conzemius Paccoud of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg was a special guest of the Library on March 14, 2002, at the dedication of a sculpture given to the University by the Embassy. “L’Entre Deux Anneaux” [between two rings] was created by Luxembourg sculptor Bernard Ney and was part of a European Union art exhibit in Washington, DC last spring. The piece was offered to TCU in honor of the ongoing relationship of our university and the Embassy of Luxembourg. The Library is home to the Pate-Newcomer Luxembourg Collection started several years ago by the late Mr. A.M. Pate, his brother Sebert Pate, and Dr. James Newcomer, Vice Chancellor Emeritus of TCU.

Guests at the dedication ceremony included Mrs. Joyce Pate, newly-appointed Honorary Consul to Luxembourg from Texas and donor to the Pate-Newcomer Collection; Mr. Robert Biwer, Consul General from Luxembourg; Doug Harmon, President of the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau; and Dr. Newcomer. Following the dedication, Provost William Koehler hosted a luncheon for the Ambassador and her guests. Dr. Newcomer was honored at the luncheon on the occasion of his 90th birthday. The contemporary sculpture will be on permanent display in the Library lobby near the Circulation desk
