Long Description:

Since it's beginnings in 1955, American River College has grown to one of the largest community colleges in the state with over 38,000 students. Part of the 50 year commemoration included a sculpture on the campus.

The plaque by the sculpture reads:

ARC
In recognition of the 50th anniversary
American River College
1955-2005
"HARVEST"
Laura Parker

Growth is "an emergence; the gradual beginning or
coming fort." The spiral is a universal symbol of
growth, something that every student achieves at ARC
and that the college constantly seeks for its
academic environment.

These steel augers were "harvested" from
Sacramento's 110-year old Globe Mill grain silo, where
they were used to transport and process the crops
harvested from the farms in this region.

A gift from the artist and the President's Circle Fund
