New to campus this February is a bronze sculpture of the Holy Family of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus by artist A. Wasil. In Celebration of Family was the last work by Wasil, whose larger-than-life bronzes also grace the Vatican and Mission San Luis Rey in Southern California; he died in 2008. The sculpture is located near the entrance of the Harrington Learning Commons, Sobrato Technology Center, and Orradre Library. It was donated by physician Rudolf L. Brutoco ’74 and Diana Brutoco ’74, and the Brutocao Family Foundation, with special support from Malcolm Cisneros Law Corp.

Longtime supporters of SCU, the Brutocaos and their extended family’s contributions to SCU include the establishment of the Louis and Dorina Brutocao Award for Teaching Excellence and the Brutocao Family Foundation Award for Curriculum Innovation; Rudolf Brutoco is also a member of the University Board of Regents.
